    An unreal moment for me: Cummins

    KKR speedster relives his maiden, triumphant IPL experience

    Bengaluru 02 June 2014
    He bowled a beauty to bowl Dwayne Smith out in his very first over of the IPL. Pat Cummins had kick started his IPL career in grand fashion, and though he did not get any other chance in the games to follow, it is a wonderful IPL memory that the Australian pacer takes back home. On Sunday night, he cheered for every run his side scored in a dramatic run-chase. And by the end of it, he laid his hands on the coveted IPL trophy. Though he may have just one game under his belt, there is a lot that Cummins takes back from his first IPL experience.

    Excerpts from his interview:

    Your first IPL season and you are a part of a champion side!

    (Smiles) This is an unreal moment for me and it feels special to be crowned champions in my very first year with KKR. The team has been in unbelievable form throughout the tournament. The bowlers have been outstanding and the batsmen have been phenomenal. It has been a great journey for me to be a part of the team, and I take away a lot from it.

    What do you take back from this IPL experience?

    Being my first IPL experience, I wasn’t really quite sure what to expect from the tournament. For me, KKR is a big family and that is what I take back home. Everyone in the team was there together from day-one, which prevailed right till the end of the tournament. Everyone enjoyed each others’ success and everyone chipped in when they had to.

    How nervous were you when the team required 15 off the last two overs?

    I was really nervous when the game got that close; I was biting my nails and I can assure you I have none left on my fingers now (laughs). We knew in the dugout that we needed one big shot, and Piyush Chawla pulled that out of nowhere. It was an unbelievable moment, and as soon as the shot went for a six, there was a sigh of relief.

    What has been the highlight for you this season?

    There are quite a lot, but I would rate this run-chase right at the top. To chase 200 in the final has to top it off. Also, to win nine in a row is special; you cannot top that with anything else.
