Australia skipper Pat Cummins’ mother Maria Cummins passed away on March 10, 2023, after batting with a prolonged illness. The 29-year-old notably left India after the second Test of the recently concluded Border-Gavaskar Trophy in order to be with his mother in her last few days. The cricketer also pulled himself out of the ongoing ODI series in order to be with his family during the hard times.
On March 18, Cummins shared a few photos with his mother during some of the important times of his life. He also shared his childhood photos as fans, in the comment section, poured love and showed a lot of support for the cricketer. In the caption, he also mentioned how much he loves his mother and that she will forever be in the hearts of her loved ones.
“Love you Mum. Forever in our hearts,” Cummins wrote.
Notably, the Australian team also wore a black armband on Day 2 of the fourth Test against India at Ahmedabad in order to pay a tribute to Maria Cummins.
