Many of Australia’s top men and women players along with Pat Cummins have come forward to make a change in the climate by opting to install solar panels at all stadiums and cricket clubs.

Some of the players who have joined hands to do so are Pat Cummins, David Warner, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne and Mitchell Starc. From the women’s team, it is Rachel Haynes and Alyssa Healy. The goal is to reduce carbon footprint and restore the environment in Australia.

Pat Cummins told about the importance of this initiative in an interview.

We’ve got real ambitions, this is just the start. We’re looking at all the possibilities and we’re excited about what’s to come.

Pat Cummins talked about the 2018 Ashes. In that year, Joe Root suffered dehydration because of the massive heat. He was later sent to the hospital. He also talked about the air quality in overseas conditions such as Bangladesh and India. Haynes, Australian women’s vice-captain also talked about the situation as a win-win for them.

Alyssa Healy and I will be supporting the Sydney Cricket Club with the installation of solar systems at Drummoyne Oval.

We’re both still involved with the club. This is something I’m sure we’ll be able to point to years from now as an initiative that made a very real difference.

The money saved from the reduced electricity bills would be useful for player development and sports facilities.
