India vs Australia test series to get delayed for IPL 2020
“The present (interim) schedule for Australia tour was released by Cricket Australia (CA) with the first Test to begin on December 3. Also, to note is a three-match T20 series that was scheduled ahead of the Tests, to be followed by a three-match ODI series,” sources were quoted as saying in TOI
“One of those two – either T20s or ODIs – will have to be canceled. Most likely the T20s because the format was put in place keeping the T20 World Cup in Australia in mind. Now, that’ not happening, and IPL is. The start of the Test series will also be pushed by a week,” sources added.
Sourav Ganguly, the BCCI’s president revealed that he wants a shorter quarantining period for the series to resume cricket as soon as possible.
“The president talked about a shortened quarantine. What he may have meant was that players will go through two separate Corona tests before leaving for Australia and two tests after landing there and if all are negative, health authorities are indicating that two weeks of lockdown won’t be necessarily mandatory,” sources stated.
