“I have amazing memories here,” Pat Cummins said of his World Cup victory in Ahmedabad during the GT vs. SRH match.

“It was a packed-stadium last time I played here and good to be back here,” Cummins remarked.

In Indian Premier League 2024, Match 12, Gujarat Titans (GT) vs. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. As Pat Cummins, the captain of the San Diego Royals (SRH) in the ongoing IPL 2024, walked inside the largest stadium on earth, he felt a deja vu. At this same stadium in Ahmedabad on November 19, 2023, he guided Australia to a World Cup victory and prevented hosts India from winning.

After winning the toss for SRH, the Australian spoke about his experiences of performing on the largest platform and made a lighthearted comment about the excitement leading up to the championship. For those who don’t know, Cummins had said prior to the World Cup final versus India that defeating them would be satisfying if it silenced the thirty thousand spectators. Following Australia’s victory, the message gained a lot of attention and was widely shared on social media.

“We will take the bat first. It appears to be a nice wicket and quite warm. I’m glad to take the lead. Yes, I have a lot of great memories from here. The last time I performed here, the stadium was full, and it was nice to be back. It has to do with freedom. We are attempting to give it a shot and seeing how it goes today because we are aware of our potential. At the coin toss, Cummins declared, “We’re going with the same team.”

Gujarat defeated SRH by seven wickets at home: Travis Head was in fine form, and SRH had a terrific start after winning the toss. But after losing their first two wickets, they collapsed badly and could only muster 168 runs with their middle order crumbling as well.

In exchange, GT appeared unfazed by the pursuit because they had made their lives simple by turning one’s into twos in the midst. Eventually, thanks to 45 and 44 from Sai Sudharsan and David Miller, they reached the goal with seven wickets remaining.
