The Australian team’s captain Pat Cummins expressed gratitude to the “Barmy Army,” an English cricket fan club, for their heartfelt tribute to his ill mother. Pat, Maria’s son, expressed his mother’s feelings to the world via the social networking site Twitter.
Cummins claimed that his mother Maria, who was suffering from a terminal illness and receiving palliative care, sang “Maria” from Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise’s “West Side Story,” to which Barmy Army was dedicated.
“I appreciate you, @TheBarmyArmy; this is great. On Monday, he wrote, “Mum was really impacted and appreciated viewing this. “See you in the summer,” the Barmy Army said, reverting to the rivalry between the fans.
The Barmy Army played an emotional rendition of “Maria” from West Side Story prior to England’s second Test match against New Zealand as an homage to Pat Cummins’ mother.
The fourth and final Test against India, which starts on Wednesday, is very certainly going to be played without Pat Cummins. Steve Smith, who led Australia from 2015 to 2018, will lead the team until Pat Cummins is prepared to return.Peter Handscomb, a teammate of Pat Cummins, praised the Australian captain’s tenacity.
It’s “very normal that Pat has gone home and it’s always going to put family first,” according to Handscomb, who said this in Delhi on Sunday.Pat is receiving a lot of compassion, and the boys have been sending messages and good wishes to him and his family.
Australia will try to win just their second Test on Indian soil since 2004 and complete a comeback in the present series without Cummins and veteran opener David Warner, who will miss the remainder of the series due to an elbow fracture.
But, Australia’s Starc and all-rounder Cameron Green, both of whom have healed from finger fractures suffered in December, are very probably going to play in the third Test.
Australia’s starting Eleven will be more evenly distributed than in the previous two Tests thanks to the participation of Starc and Green, who have lately bowled at full velocity in the practise nets. The first Test will start on June 16 at Edgbaston when Australia travels to the UK in June for an Ashes series.
