In the video, Cummins, the captain of SRH, was seen approaching Kohli, who was sitting on the ground with his pads on. Cummins mentioned how the coach was saying that he was making the wicket look flat. In response, Kohli, with a smile on his face, said, “You are too good, Pat”.

This interaction was not just a casual exchange between two players. It signifies the mutual respect and admiration that these two cricketers have for each other. Despite being on opposing teams, they showcased the spirit of sportsmanship that transcends the boundaries of the cricket field.

Moreover, this interaction also highlighted the camaraderie that exists among players in the IPL, irrespective of their team affiliations. The IPL, known for bringing together players from different countries under one roof, fosters such bonds among players, enhancing the overall spirit of the game.

RCB languish at the bottom of the table with just 1 win in 8 matches. Meanwhile, the Cummins-led SRH have been riding high on confidence, shattering one record after the other. SRH stand at the No. 3 position in the points table with 5 wins from 7 matches.
