Paine Wanted To Make Gym Out Of His Garage
Australia Test captain Tim Paine has told his wallet was stolen from his car after it was parked on the road outside his house.
The Australian wicket-keeper said he moved out his car from the garage on to the road to set up a gym in it, but he found out later that his car was broken into and his wallet was stolen.
Paine who is under self-isolation, wanted to work on his cricket skills by turning the garage into the home gym but was shocked when he woke up to a text on Tuesday morning informing that his credit card was used.
The 35-year-old spoke about the incident saying,” I’ve just turned the garage into a bit of a home gym, and I want to hang the (stocking) off the bit where the garage door opens.”
He further said, ” “I figured if I can, I can work on my cover drive while I’m at it, but I’ve hit a bit of a snag today because I moved the car out onto the street only to wake up this morning to a text from NAB saying my credit card has been used.”
“I went outside, and the car door was open, and the wallet’s gone,” he added.
