SRH captain Pat Cummins was spotted playing gully cricket with schoolchildren in Hyderabad after Hyderabad became the third team to qualify for the IPL 2024 playoffs. With SRH already through in the playoffs, Cummins shifted his focus from competitive cricket to gully cricket. A video has gone viral on social media where Cummins can be seen batting while a local kid from Hyderabad bowls.

Pat Cummins loves India

The Australian star has been enjoying his time in India since his ODI World Cup triumph last year. Cummins is emerging as another Australian after David Warner to flaunt his love for India. He had recently taken his family for a Hyderabadi biryani feast when they were in India. Cummins also aced the Pushpa hook-step and thrilled the fans by speaking Telugu ahead of IPL 2024.

The SunRisers became the 3rd team after KKR and RR to qualify for the playoffs. SRH entered the playoffs with 15 points in their kitty as their clash against GT resulted in a washout. The match ended without a ball being bowled at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad on May 16, Friday.

SRH qualified for the playoffs for the first time since IPL 2020. As they finished at the bottom of the table in 2021 and 2023, and in the 8th spot in IPL 2022. The Cummins-led side will hope for a top-two finish as the probability continues to be within their reach. SRH will hope to beat PBKS and expect RR with 16 points to lose their last match against KKR.
