Sydney: In this era of Coronavirus Pandemic, cricket along with other sports has also been affected. Due to having a quarantine before every tour, cricketers have to devise new ways for fitness.
Use of towels in quarantine
Australian bowlers have been asked to use Room Towel to maintain the strength of their arms during lockdown and quarantine. With no cricket for a month before heading to the West Indies for the Test series, the Australian team is discovering new ways, including using towels to stay fit during this phase.

Pat Cummins said on his YouTube channel, our trainer has sent us a video. There is a training for us that we try to maintain our throwing in lockdown. Cummins said, you get a hand towel or a small towel and you tie a knot at the end of it. This 9th knot looks almost like a cricket ball and you bowl in your room. This keeps your throwing ability. ‘

Players have been quarantine for a long time
Pat Cummins is one of several Australian players who have been in quarantine after coming from India via Maldives following the postponement of IPL 2021 earlier this month. Players including star players David Warner and Steve Smith are locked in hotel rooms in Sydney. However, they are following their training schedule.
Cummins accepted the talk of the trainer
Pat Cummins accepted the new idea of the Australian team’s trainer and said that since it is not possible to use the cricket ball in the room, the towel has come in handy. Australia will begin their tour of the West Indies with five T20 Internationals starting on 9 July. All T20 internationals will be played in St. Lucia.
