Totally outplayed: Pat Cummins after 8-wicket defeat in IPL 2024 summit clash

The ODI World Cup and World Test Championship Final winning captain, Pat Cummins, opened up after their comprehensive defeat in the IPL 2024 final in Chennai. “They bowled fantastically. Unfortunately, old mate Starcy turned it on again. Not enough tonight, totally outplayed,” Cummins said at the post-match presentation ceremony. “You hope you get a few boundaries away but they bowled fantastically well, didn’t really give us anything,” he further added. 

The Australian captain also opened up on where the SRH lost the match. “It was a bit of a tricky wicket. If we got 160, it would have felt we were in the game. Didn't feel like a 200+ wicket. Well short, maybe a few extra runs would have given us a chance. So many (positives), the style that the guys played particularly with the bat,” he said.
