new Delhi. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have had a good start in IPL 2022. KKR are second in the points table after winning two out of their 3 matches. Now the team will become even more dangerous. The reason for this is the comeback of the match winner bowler. Australia’s Test captain and fast bowler Pat Cummins has joined KKR and his quarantine period will end on Monday. He will be ready to play the match from April 6. KKR’s next match is against Mumbai Indians on 6 April. In such a situation, Cummins is fully expected to play in this match.
Pat Cummins KKR Head Code Brendon McCullum is very happy to join the K team. He said that Cummins is such a player, who easily adapts to the atmosphere. He is also a strong leader. In such a situation, his presence will also benefit Shreyas Iyer, who has been successful in leaving his mark as captain. However, with the return of Cummins, KKR may find it difficult to choose the playing XI. Because in his absence Tim Southee has bowled brilliantly for KKR.
