Pat Cummins has opted out of IPL 2023 citing Australia’s heavy workload. As captain of the Test and ODI teams, Cummins will lead Australia in four Tests in India before the IPL as well as an Ashes series following the showpiece T20 tournament. Also, there is an ODI World Cup later in the year in India.

Cummins tweeted, “I’ve made the difficult decision to miss next year’s IPL. The international schedule is packed with Tests and ODIs for the next 12 months, so will take some rest ahead of an Ashes series and World Cup.”

In a follow up tweet, Cummins thanked the Kolkata Knight Riders, his franchise over the past few seasons, for their understanding.

“Thanks so much to KKRiders for their understanding. Such a terrific team of players and staff, and I hope I can get back there ASAP.”

Pat Cummins pulls out of IPL 2023: A look at Australia’s huge schedule

After a disappointing World Cup campaign by Australia, Cummins will lead the team in a three-match ODI series against England, followed by Tests against West Indies and South Africa.

After the home season, Australia will tour India for four Tests in February-March. In June and July, Australia will attempt to retain the Ashes away in England, before the ODI World Cup in India scheduled for October 2023.

Should Australia win a Test series in India for the first time since 2004, retain the Ashes and win the World Cup, it will surely go down as one of the nation’s finest ever cricketing years. Indeed, Cummins wants to be as fresh as possible for those campaigns in the quest for greatness.
