The Team fan called out Pat Cummins after Australia's painful World Cup loss to Rohit Sharma’s men in the Super 8 stage of the T20 World Cup.

Much to the delight of Team India fans, who were heartbroken by Pat Cummins' Australian side lifting the ICC World Cup on Indian soil last year, the Men from Down Under suffered an early exit at the T20 World T20 on Tuesday. Outplayed by Rashid Khan's Afghanistan in the Super 8 stage of the ICC event, Cummins-starrer Australia recorded another heartbreaking defeat at the hands of Rohit Sharma's Team India in their final Group 1 fixture yesterday.

Tasked to chase down a record target of 206 against India, Australia managed to muster 181-7 in 20 overs at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium. Cummins, who scored 11* off 7 balls, was heading back to the pavilion when the Australian pacer was called out by a fan in the stands. "Hey Pat! That's for 2023 , that's a revenge for 2023, remember Ahmedabad? And you going home tomorrow," the fan sledged the Aussie pacer after India's epic win over the former world champions in the Super 8 stage of the T20 World Cup.
