Captain Cummins says, “Want to see an aggressive start from SRH”

The newly appointed captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad, Pat Cummins, hopes his team can make an aggressive start in the IPL this season and gain some early ground.
Cummins was bought for a huge amount of Rs 20.50 crore by the Sunrisers during last year’s player auction, and the Australian has replaced South African Aiden Markram as their captain.
Cummins, in a video posted by the SRH on their ‘X’ account, said, “A bit of planning to go and then just want to get off to a really good start. T20s are hard. Kolkata’s a good team, but I just want to see a really aggressive start to the season.”
The pacer said he wanted to work closely with the players and coaching staff to get the maximum results during the tournament.
“I mean, the plans are, you know, I work really closely with the guys that I don’t know too well... get to know them.
“Get to know what they need from me out in the middle. And then work with coaches and what they want to see out of me as a player,” said Cummins.
“I think we’ve got a great mix. We’ve got a couple more experienced guys like Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar). Obviously, Aiden Markram was captain last year. But we’ve got some exciting young talent.
“I’m super excited to see guys like Abhishek (Sharma), Umran Malik—these guys I’ve only seen a little bit of but super excited about. So, I think fans should be pretty pumped for the season ahead,” said Cummins.
