Australia speedster Pat Cummins, who became the most expensive overseas signing in IPL history when Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) fetched him for a whopping INR 15.5 Crore in the auction last month, is currently in India to play three ODIs.
Cummins enjoys a huge fan following in India and the world once again got a glimpse of it when a fan gifted him a KKR jersey.
On Tuesday (January 14), the official handle of KKR posted a video on Twitter featuring Cummins with the special gift he received from his die-hard fan.
In the clip, Cummins, who had represented KKR in 2014 & 2015, said that this sweet gesture from his fan brought back several memories of the past.
"I'm here back in India and I've run into a fan and he's gifted me this old KKR shirt from 2015. It brings back a lot of memories. I'm really excited for the season," the No.1 Test bowler said.
"Got some great memories at Eden Gardens. As a kid, I remember watching lots of cricket played there and just seeing 100,000 Indian fans going crazy.
"And to be there in 2014 and 2015, winning in 2014, going back there for a ceremony and the stadium was packed! Just to welcome us home," he remembered fondly.
"I absolutely love it there. Can't wait to make a lot more memories this season," he said.
Pointing at the logo on the jersey, Cummins also made a bold prediction.
"So, I'm just looking closer at the logo. You can see two stars there, because we've won two titles. I think this is the season we add an extra star to that," he noted.
