Kolkata Knight Riders have been struggling in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL). They had played the final in 2021 whereas this season, they have failed to keep up the momentum. Shreyas Iyer-led side has 10 points after 12 matches. They still have a chance of making it to the playoffs if they win their rest two league matches as well. Meanwhile, KKR pacer Pat Cummins is one of their key players, who loves interacting with his fans on social media.
On Wednesday, he took to Twitter and shared a video of the “one of the first things that he packs when on tour” and it is a coffee machine. In the video Pat Cummins makes coffee from the machine and then offers it to his teammate Sam Billings as well.

Pat Cummins has so far claimed 7 wickets in 5 matches. He stole the limelight this season with a 14-ball fifty in his first match of the season when he tied KL Rahul’s record for the fastest IPL half-century ever. However, Umesh Yadav is the highest wicket-taker for KKR this season so far with 15 wickets from 10 matches as well.
KKR won their last match against Mumbai Indians. After the win, Shreyas Iyer said: “Very pleased because after losing the last game by a big margin, feels good to come back and win by a big margin is nice. We had a nice start in the powerplay and Venky targeted bowlers well. I personally felt that it wasn’t easy to start for a new batter. When we went into bowl, the plan was to hit the right areas and not give room. It is really difficult (to tell players about axings). Coach and at times, CEO is also obviously involved in team selections. Each and every player takes it well, and they have put in their best efforts. The win was comprehensive, and when I spoke to the players, they were pumped up to win the game today. I’m not satisfied (totally) but want to maintain this.”
