Paine spreads awareness on coronavirus

On a video message posted by the official Twitter handle of Cricket Australia, Tim Paine was seen sharing awareness message in the wake of coronavirus pandemic. The Test captain of Australian cricket team hoped to get back to cricket soon while asked everyone to take care. “It is something that needs to be taken very seriously. Look, I hope that we are all back playing the game we love and going about our lives the way we want to as soon as possible. But in the meantime, please take care of yourselves, take care of others and let’s ride this out together. All the best.”

He further added how the week was a tough one for the cricket fraternity as all activities got cancelled in Australia. “Look there’s no doubt it’s been a big week for our cricket community, a really big time for all Australians.” But he also mentioned that the decisions were certainly made to safeguard a broader interest. “Some decisions have been made in the best interests of our country and our most vulnerable people. Those decisions certainly weren’t made lightly and they have been made based on the best possible advice from our government and from health experts.”

The Ashes-winning captain said that one of the tough decisions was to cancel all cricket matches during this. “One of those decisions has been to cancel all cricket and I realise that’s tough but it is something we should all take very seriously.”

Tim Paine is looking forward to playing cricket again and hoping the cricket to resume its schedule soon. He said,”…there’s no doubt that Australian men’s team will love to be in Hobart trying to win the Chappel-Hadlee Trophy and certainly our female World Champions team would love to be in South Africa.”
