Pat Cummins Joins MLC’s San Francisco Unicorns

Australia’s captain for the Test and ODI series, Pat Cummins, is a big addition and will be included in the second season of MLC. The 31-year-old will play for the San Francisco Unicorns, a team strategically affiliated with Victoria’s elite Australian setup. It is anticipated that Cummins will take Aaron Finch’s place in the leadership role at the Unicorns upon his retirement.

After just recently led Sunrisers Hyderabad to the IPL 2024 championship game, Cummins makes a significant entry into the T20 franchise scene with this MLC stint. The skipper of Australia has participated in the Big Bash as well. Since the middle of February, Cummins has been traveling with Australia and the Sunrisers. After starting the World Cup five days ago, Cummins will begin a three-week spell in the MLC, capping an arduous journey through the game that he started in February with a tour of New Zealand.

Aussie Stars Boost MLC’s Second Season

Importantly, he hasn’t previously shown any desire to try his luck with a T20 franchise. A testament to the league’s rising prominence in international cricket is the fact that Cummins personally chose MLC. It is noticeable how much more of a draw the A-listed stars are in the T20 circuit currently. For the second season of the MLC, Cummins teams up with fellow Australians Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Spencer Johnson, Steve Smith, and Jake Fraser Mcgurk. Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, and several more Australian players from the Australian World Cup team are reportedly planning to rush to the state side.
