Sumit, born in Haryana, is an all-rounder who looks up to Mumbai Indians (MI) captain Hardik Pandya as his role model. 

"Hardik Pandya is my role model. I have been following him for some time. I see myself playing the way he bats lower down the order. That's my role as well. I try to be a match-finisher like him for my team," Sumit Kumar said in a video posted by the Capitals.

Sumit Kumar, in the video, also spoke about the influence of Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly on the team. They always give out a positive energy whenever they speak, he said.

“They ask me to have trust in my abilities, follow the process and keep playing my own game. They always back me," he said. 

He said in the video that performing well in the tournament would probably give him a chance to represent India in the long run. It will help him earn a name and fame further, he added. 

Delhi are sitting at number nine on the points table at the moment, with just four points and a Net Run Rate (NRR) of -0.975. They have won two matches among the six played so far.

Gujarat, on the other hand, have played six and won three of those. They are at number six in the IPL 2024 table with six points and an NRR of -0.637.
