Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Pat Cummins has been ruled out of the remainder of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season on Friday.

Following the match against Mumbai Indians on Tuesday, Cummins, who bagged 3-22 from his four overs, underwent an MRI on his right hip.

Before leaving for Australia, Cummins said, “I had an amazing time in India, and I would like to thank KKR for taking care of my family and me. I wish all the team members the best of luck for the remainder of the tournament. I will be watching the games and be cheering on..."

In five matches for KKR this season, Cummins picked seven wickets, including a match-winning 3/22 against the Mumbai Indians. In the earlier fixture between the sides, Cummins had racked up a 14-ball fifty to hand KKR a thrilling win over MI.

The Knight Riders are alive in the playoffs race by a slender margin with 10 points from 12 matches. Shreyas Iyer's men will face Sunrisers Hyderabad next on Saturday before their final league game against Lucknow Super Giants on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old is expected to return to action in two weeks after skipping Australia's T20Is in Sri Lanka in early June during its all-format tour to the island nation.
