Meanwhile, it was the wish of the old one KKR veteran wicket captain and keeper who has caught the eye of internet users. While wishing the 28-year-old, Karthik is hopeful that Cummins will soon be named the skipper of the Australian national team as he has all the skills to become a good leader.
“I think in KKR we are very lucky to have a player like you. One of the best in the world. I wish you a very, very happy birthday. I sincerely hope that you will soon become an Australian captain. I think you have all the skills to do it. I wish you all the best, ”Karthik said.
Discussions about Cummins as head of Australia have been going on for some time now. Current Australian test skipper Tim Paine does not have an ideal outing as a leader as his Australia lost the home test series to India. So, rumor has it that Pat Cummins will become the next captain if Australia also fails in the ashes.
Later in the clip, Eoin Morgan also wished the Aussie pacer by saying, “Happy Birthday Boss,” while opener Shubman Gill also wished Cummins “Happy Birthday.”
