COVID19: Aussie test skipper robbed during lockdown


Sydney, Mar 31: Australian Test skipper Tim Paine’s wallet and a few other things were stolen from his car during the lockdown due to coronavirus pandemic.

Pained had parked his car on the street after converting his garage to a home gym in a bid to stay fit during the lockdown in South Hobart in Australia. Interestingly, the robbers headed to McDonald’s after the robbery which led to Paine receiving a call from National Australia Bank (NAB).


“I woke up this morning to a message from NAB saying I had some interesting movements on my account,” the 35-year-old told

“I went out and the (car) door was open and my wallet and a few other things had gone.

“Actually looking at my account, the boys went straight to Maccas – the boys must have been hungry.”
