Talking about his previous seasons of the Indian Premier League, he was picked up by Mumbai Indians in 2018’s edition of IPL, however, he couldn’t play because of the injury he faced that ruled him out of the tournament.

During the auctions, Royal Challengers Bangalore started bidding for the Australian seamer, thereafter Delhi Capitals also joined and started bidding fiercely for Cummins. But Kolkata Knight Riders snapped him for a mammoth INR 15.5 crores. 

Royal Challengers Bangalore looked very desperate to pull in the seamer in their tweet, thus, they put in a bid of INR 15 crore after which the Capitals backed out. RCB then hit back with a bid of 15.25 crores, but KKR sealed the deal with a bid of 15.5 crores.
