Cummins had shared this story back in 2011 in an interview with before his debut in South Africa. The accident occurred when he was three or four years old, his finger getting slammed by a door, resulting in the loss of the top portion of his finger. Despite this, it didn’t affect him as the length of his middle finger matched that of his index finger.

“I lost the top of my finger when I was about three or four (years old),” he had said. “It got slammed in a door and I lost about a centimetre off the top of my finger. It doesn’t really affect me because (the finger) is about the same length as the other one (index finger).”

The New South Welshman added, “I still get my sister in tears … (because) she slammed the door on it.”

Regarding the match, Mumbai’s win kept them in contention for the IPL 2024 playoffs, though with slim chances. This victory marked their fourth win of the season, elevating them to the ninth position in the points table. Meanwhile, SRH holds the fourth spot, tied with three other teams – CSK and LSG – on 12 points from 11 games.
