As the SRH captain, Cummins, wrapped up his batting practice, he approached Kohli, who was taking a break amidst RCB’s rigorous training session. The two engaged in a jovial exchange, captured in a video shared by RCB’s official ‘X’ handle.

In the video, Cummins humorously mentioned how the coach had remarked that he was making the pitch look flat. Kohli, in response, lauded Cummins’ exceptional skills, expressing admiration with a heartfelt “You are too good, Pat.”

Interestingly, the camaraderie between the two players is juxtaposed with their on-field rivalry. Cummins famously dismissed Kohli in the final of the ODI World Cup in 2023, delivering a short-pitched delivery that rattled Kohli’s stumps, securing a crucial wicket for Australia against India.

As RCB grapples with a challenging season, languishing at the bottom of the table with just one win in eight matches, SRH, led by Cummins, boasts confidence, currently holding the third position with five wins from seven matches.

Chinnaswamy Stadium, SRH achieved a historic milestone by posting the highest-ever total in IPL history, scoring 287/3. While RCB came close to the target, they fell short by 25 runs, resulting in a loss for the home team.
