Pat Cummins and the Aussie team wait for ‘the power to be on so dinner can begin’ in Sri Lanka


The country of Sri Lanka is in crisis, especially after being hit by the Covid-19 which caused the economy to plummet. As the country struggles to stabilize things, the Australian cricket team has decided to go on a tour. The Australian squad toured the island nation for six weeks during which they played T20I, ODI and Test matches.

However, the situation is so bad that some people in the host country couldn’t even watch the home games as they faced power cuts. As the luxury that normal Sri Lankans were used to was no longer available, even the Australian side faced problems.

Taking to social media, Australian test skipper Pat Cummins posted a photo of himself with Alex Carey and Mitch Starc sitting in the dark and waiting for the power to return.

He captioned the photo, “Sitting in the restaurant earlier this week waiting for the city power to be turned on so dinner can begin. Sri Lanka is going through a tough time right now but people have been amazing with us and are grateful to us to play and explore here. We are ready for Game 5”.

When it comes to the clash, the final ODI between the two teams could be dead rubber as the Lankan side secured a thrilling four-point victory over Australia in the fourth ODI to seal the five-game series.
