News: Thieves break into Queensland's team van and steal costly equipment ahead of Sheffield Shield match


The Queensland team faced an unexpected issue during the last day as thieves broke into the team van and stole the equipment of the cricketers. They were going to face off against Tasmania in the Sheffield Shield tournament which was already postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak. 

Talking about the bizarre incident, the Queensland team van had been parked outside the hotel as they were getting ready for the upcoming clash. Then the thieves conquered the van by breaking the van's window and stole down the costly bats and a few more. 

The wicket-keeper batsman of Queensland, Jimmy Pierson had shared the image on Instagram and wrote "Someone’s got to be the unlucky one. If anyone sees a couple of brand new Gray Nic sticks floating around Adelaide can you let me know?".


They straightaway went to the South Australia Police and made a report about the incident. However, the CEO of Queensland, Terry Svenson is very confident in his team as they were all set to kick off their campaign on October 7th.

According to the reports from other sources, the CEO stated that "We thank the players, coaches and support staff for being ready to start the season in Adelaide at short notice and of course thank their families for their support with the prospect of the group having an extended period away from home".

"The squad have got strong leadership and are a united group, so we are confident they are ready to deal with whatever disruptions are thrown up by COVID-19," he added.

After that, their coach Wade Seccombe shared a few words and claimed that "We’re fortunate to have had a really extensive off-season and pre-season so while this week wasn’t what anyone could have planned for, as a squad, we should be confident and ready to implement our plans and make the most of the next few weeks".
