Australian captain Pat Cummins has penned a four-year deal with MLC franchise San Francisco Unicorns. The cricketer is currently in West Indies as part of Australia’s playing group for the ongoing 2024 T20 World Cup.

The 31-year-old pace maverick recently led the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) franchise to its first appearance in an IPL final in six years.

Pat Cummins signs four-year MLC contract

Pat Cummins is set to make his MLC debut in USA through the upcoming 2024 edition of the tournament in July. The cricketer joined the San Francisco Unicorns roaster, which features the likes of several international stars like Corey Anderson, Finn Allen, Haris Rauf, Matt Henry as well as Cummins’ 2023 World Cup-winning Australian teammate Josh Inglis.

Cummins recently led the SRH group to the finals of the IPL 2024 season in India, and he is currently in the West Indies as one of Australia’s primary pace exponents for the 2024 T20 World Cup.

Cummins’ four-year MLC contract with San Francisco Unicorns marks a significant landmark in his franchise career. It remains a likely possibility that the Australian speedster has been roped in by the franchise to replace its former captain, Aaron Finch.

Pat Cummins’ leadership stocks rose to unprecedented heights after he led Australia to 2023 WTC and 2023 World Cup wins in England and India respectively. Moreover, the cricketer also became one of the costliest purchases in IPL history later that same year, by bagging a Rs.20.5 crore deal with the SRH. 

Fortunately for the SRH owners, their investment in Cummins paid off as the legendary Australian fast bowler guided the ‘Orange Army’ to its first IPL final since 2018.

Currently designated to travel around West Indies and USA for the 2024 T20 World Cup, the 31-year-old will be expected to stay back in Americas for MLC 2024 in July.
