“Pat Cummins will miss the remainder of [IPL 2022] owing to a minor hip injury. Have a speedy recovery, Pat Cummins. We will miss you,” the Kolkata-based franchise wrote in the caption on Instagram.

“I just want to say a huge thanks to everyone. It’s great to be based out of a similar side to last year. It feels like you are coming back home. Thanks for looking after the family and to everyone, players, staff, the hotel staff. It’s been a great 5-6 weeks. All the best for the last few games. I’ll be cheering on. Hopefully, we make it to the finals too,” the 29-year-old pacer said.
