BCCI chief Sourav Ganguly says want stronger bio-bubble in Australia during the tour

Cricket Australia (CA) has released the schedule of India’s upcoming tour of Australia 2020-21. The 4-match Test series starting from December 3 will conclude on January 17. The test match series will be followed by a 3-match ODI series and 3-match T20I series. Most of the cricketers of the Indian team are in the UAE for the ongoing IPL 2020 and are supposed to fly to Sydney next month. The players will be quarantined for 14 days in view of coronavirus.

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly has revealed that the cricket board is in discussion with Cricket Australia (CA) on making a safe and secure environment for the visitors and that Team India will follow the quarantine protocols. Ganguly has said the tour is going ahead despite the fact that CA is yet to release a finalized schedule for the Test series and LOIs.

Ganguly told Sydney Morning Herald that so far the tour is ahead. The initial part will be in Sydney. The cricket board is still in discussions on how to get the bio part and medical parts stronger because it’s a long tour but it has been informed that Australia is COVID free at the moment, there aren’t many cases. Basically, the board is trying to get everything in place and make sure it is safe.

It has been requested that families of cricketers should be accommodated on tour because they have been in the IPL for a long time and then they go straight from the IPL to Australia because there is a 14-day quarantine. It will be solved. They (players) have already been living in a bubble for the last 80 days, he added.
