Australia Test captain Pat Cummins confirmed his participation in the upcoming IPL 2022 mega auction.

Cummins made headlines after getting picked by KKR for a whopping amount of INR 15.50 crore in the IPL 2020 auction.

Cummins picked 21 wickets in his second stint with KKR but was not available for the UAE leg in this season as he wanted to be with his wife for the birth of their child.

The Australian pacer, who has snapped 38 IPL wickets from 37 matches, feels players need to be aware of their personal workload and then only decide on playing a particular tournament.

“I’ve signed up for the auction at this stage. I’ll probably have a bit more of a think about it before that auction date. At this stage, I plan to do the IPL. I have no advice for anyone else. I think you’ve got to be aware of (workloads), it could be a lot of time on the road, some people manage that better than others,” Cummins was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia.

“You have to know what you’re signing up for. It could be a long-ish winter but the last couple of winters have been quiet at home. The traditional tours are still a little way away, it will be bubbles for a little bit longer. Everyone has to be aware of it,” he added.

Although Cummins missed the second Test in Adelaide after he was identified as a close contact of a COVID-19 positive case, yet he ended as the leading wicket-taker of the series.

Cummins nabbed 21 wickets from four games, two more than his long-time teammate Mitchell Starc. This is the third time in a row that Cummins picked the most wickets overall in the Ashes.
