Irfan Pathan hails WC winning skipper Pat Cummins for carrying drinks during Australia’s T20 WC opener

Srinagar: Former India pacer Irfan Pathan has hailed Australia’s World Cup winning skipper Pat Cummins for carrying drinks for his side during T20 World Cup 2024 match vs Oman.

During Australia vs Oman match in Barbados, Pat Cummins was seen carrying drinks for his team.

Irfan Pathan expressed his awe with the “Culture” of Australia, which chose to bench their multi-world championship-winning captain and one of their biggest superstars during a World Cup match, opting for the T20 cricket specialist Nathan Ellis in order to have a much more sharper and suited team for T20Is and give game time to a non-regular player.

“The CULTURE,” tweeted Irfan.

Even Cummins was carrying the drinks happily for his team, without any hesitation, despite the fact that he is a World Cup winning skipper for Australia.

Coming to the match, Australia was put to bat first by Oman, who won the toss. Aussies were restricted to 50/3 at one point. Half-centuries from Marcus Stoinis and David Warner helped Australia reach 164/5 in their 20 overs.

Mehran Khan was the top bowler for Oman.

In the run-chase, Oman kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Though Ayaan Khan and Mehran put up a fight, Oman could score only 125/9 in their 20 overs and lost by 39 runs.

Stoinis also delivered a fine performance with the ball, with Adam Zampa, Nathan Ellis and Mitchell Starc also taking two wickets.

Stoinis’ all-round show earned him the ‘Player of the Match’ award.
