Pat Cummins denies possibility of Australia manipulating England’s exit from T20 World Cup 2024

Pat Cummins has cleared that Australia would never have contemplated manipulating net run-rate to knock defending champions England out of the T20 World Cup. He also believed that any such tactics would’ve been against the spirit of the game. In fact, even the rules are such that the ICC will ban skipper Mitchell Marsh for two matches if Australia indeed manipulate the NRR.

Meanwhile, the NRR equation is no more needed now after England thrashed Oman with 101 balls in hand to boost their net run-rate from -1.8 to +3.08. Scotland will now have no option but to beat Australia in their final league stage game to qualify for the Super 8 round. On the other hand, England are set to face Namibia in their last group stage encounter on June 15 in Antigua at the same venue where they skittled Oman for just 47 runs.
