“It felt similar to Dhaka, I reckon, just below Chittagong,” Cummins told cricket.com.au on Saturday (September 23), comparing the conditions on the two back-to-back tours. “But that’s the hottest one-day game anyone said they’ve played. I think the 50 overs felt like it was about 200 overs out there. You only had to look at ‘Wadey’ (Matthew Wade), it was 15 overs in and he was on all fours. So it’s not great conditions.”
“I thought it was a great effort from the five or six bowlers. There were no big overs so I think to keep them to 250 on a really good batting wicket and batting conditions in the afternoon, I thought it was a great job,” he concluded.
Pat Cummins revealed that Kolkata’s soaring temperature and high humidity during the second ODI presented one of the toughest challenges for the visiting side.
