'We've never seen anything like this,' says Aaron Finch on Coronavirus travel advisory
- Finch said that it is important, it needs to be made sure that you're doing everything you can to stop the spread.
- Tim Paine stated that the shutdown is for bigger reasons than cricket
With the IPL on hold till at least 15 April and the travel warning issued by the Australian government advising its citizens not to travel abroad, Australian limited-overs captain Aaron Finch has said that they have never seen anything like this.
"That (travel advice) has changed over the last couple of hours. That could change in two weeks or three weeks, it's hard to plan anything. But it's just about making sure everyone around you personally is safe and you're doing everything you can to stop the spread," he told SEN.

Australian Test captain, Tim Paine who was scheduled to play in the Sheffield Shield for Tasmania stated that the shutdown is for bigger reasons than cricket.
"I realise it's tough but it's something we should all take very seriously. I would love to be playing for Tasmania right now in the hunt for the Sheffield Shield final and there's no doubt our Australian men's team would love to be in Hobart trying to win back the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy. Certainly our female world champion team would love to be in South Africa," he said.Published 18 Mar 2020, 21:53 IST
