Tim Southee replaces Pat Cummins in KKR squad
In another new replacement for the remainder of IPL 2021, Tim Southee of New Zealand replaces unavailable Pat Cummins in the KKR lineup.
Cummins is unavailable due to the childbirth of his partner.
With Southee’s inclusion, KKR now has 2 New Zealand fast bowlers in their squad, the other being Lockie Furgusion who bowls at great pace. Tim Southee replaces Pat Cummins in KKR squad.
Southee had sporadic IPL appearances and his last stint with RCB in 2019 was a dissappointing one.

It remains to seen whether Southee becomes the first choice pacer for KKR as Furgusion with his pace and ability to bowl yorkers could be in the first XI now that Cummins is not there
