[WATCH] Pat Cummins names the Indian cricketer whom he admires the most

Pat Cummins was given three options to pick the Indian cricketer whom he admires.

It is no secret that cricketers often look up to and admire other cricketers in their journey. Their admiration towards other players can be for a wide range of reasons and that is because of true qualities such as skill, technique, sportsmanship, leadership or achievements.

Meanwhile, Australian captain Pat Cummins was caught up in a recent interview for a question and answer session. The veteran who donned the white t-shirt sporting Sunrisers Hyderabad logo on it was asked to name the Indian cricketer whom he admires the most.

The SRH captain was given three options – Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni. To which, Cummins said, “The Indian cricketer I admire, I think is MS Dhoni. We’ve been playing for 20 odd years, amazing.”

MS Dhoni is known for his cool and composed nature under pressure. This trait that sets him apart from most other captains. Perhaps, Cummins took a liking to MS Dhoni because the latter stays calm in high-pressure moments.
