Pat Cummins led Sunrisers Hyderabad to a comfortable 4-wicket win over Punjab Kings on Sunday, helping them to secure 2nd place on the IPL points table. A key part of SRH's success on Sunday was Abhishek Sharma's 66-run 28-ball innings, which gave the Orange side a solid start and ensured that the required run rate wasn't an issue in the 215-run chase.

After the match, SRH skipper Pat Cummins praised the young left-hander while also talking about the experience of captaining the side. 

Speaking to the broadcasters, Cummins said, "It's pretty cool, it's awesome. We have won 6 out of 7 here, it has been great. I didn't know many guys coming into this season, but we have played great cricket and had some fun," Cummins said.

"He (Abhishek) is amazing. I wouldn't want to bowl against him. He's scary. Nitish is a class player, looks mature beyond his age, he is perfect for the top-order. Really satisfying. I haven't played in finals before. Playing some really good cricket, excited for what's ahead," the veteran pacer added.

Notably, the left-hander has had a great time with the bat this IPL season. In the 13 matches played this season, Abhishek Sharma has scored 467 runs at a strike rate of 209 and an average of almost 39. Along with Travis Head, the Indian opener has been a key part of SRH's success this season.
