Aussie bowlers use towels for practice in quarantine

Sydney, May 28 (IANS) Australian bowlers have been asked to use room towels to maintain strength in their arms during lockdown and quarantine.

With no cricket for up to a month before they fly to West Indies for two white-ball series, the Aussies are discovering novel ways, including using towels, to keep fit during the phase.

“Our trainer has sent us a programme, an exercise for us to try out to keep our throwing up in lockdown,” Pat Cummins had said on a Youtube show.Adv.

“Which is, you get a hand towel or a small towel and you tie a knot at the end of it. It 9the knot) almost looks like a cricket ball and you bowl in your room and you feel a bit of resistance while bowling,” he added while explaining the method.

Cummins is one of many Australian players who are serving quarantine after arriving from India via Maldives following postponement of Indian Premier League earlier this month. The players, including star players David Warner and Steve Smith, are locked up in hotel rooms in Sydney. They are, however, following their training regimen.

Cummins acknowledged the novel idea from Aussie team trainer, saying that since it is not possible to use a cricket ball in the room, the towel has come in handy.
