Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins, who is a part of the Kolkata Knight Riders team, recently shares the bond he has with young Indian opener Shubman Gill with fans.
Both Pat Cummins and Shubman Gill shared the dressing room during the first part of this year's Indian Premier League.
The franchise KKR recently took to their social media accounts to share a piece from Pat Cummins' YoutTube vlog, where the two cricket stars were seen swapping their Test jerseys.
The Australian pacer revealed that the two had earlier planned to do so after the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, where Gill made his much-anticipated debut. Cummins made sure to give the Indian batter his jersey with a special message on it before he flew to the Maldives with the Australian consignment after the postponement of the 14th edition of the cash-rich league. While Shubman Gill is expected to play a major role for KKR during the second part of IPL 2021 in the UAE, Pat Cummins has announced his unavailability citing personal reasons. The IPL 2021 will resume from September 19 in the Gulf country.
Pat Cummins, last month promised to donate $50,000 to PM-CARES Fund to support the country's fight against COVID-19, had then revealed that he has "ended up allocating his donation" to UNICEF Australia.
Cummins took to social media, where he revealed that he has donated the money to UNICEF Australia's 'India COVID-19 Crisis Appeal', an initiative started in partnership with Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA) to help tackle the ongoing crisis in India.
The India vs New Zealand WTC Final will be played from June 18-22 at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton.
