An official of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had earlier revealed that Team India would undergo isolation following the rules of the Coronavirus before they leave for Australia later this year for signing in to Test matches against them.
Team India is to face quarantine isolation to save the Test series against Australia later this year, which, if it happens, will cause financial trouble to both boards, especially Australia, as president, Sourav Ganguly, president of the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI), believes it will not be possible for India to play five-match Test series. He thinks that amidst the Coronavirus outbreak, they will prefer to go ahead with T20Is and ODIs only following the quarantine isolation guidelines.
Sourav Ganguly: Least possibilities of India vs Australia five-match test series
“I don’t think it will be possible for India to participate in five Tests. There will be limited-overs games and plus we have to consider the 14-day quarantine guidelines. All this will extend the tour,” said BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly.
Australia had to make more money because they were to host the ICC Twenty20 World Cup, but it doesn’t look like. God knows how long it will take to resolve the Coronavirus epidemic. To earn revenue, Australia has added another Test match to the four-match Test series. The fifth match will be considered a one-day Test against Afghanistan scheduled for November, after which India and Australia will play a four-match Test series of the ICC Test Championship. However, it is clear that the BCCI president has announced fewer chances for the Test series to move forward.
“There is no choice -– everyone will have to do that (quarantine). You would want to resume the cricket,” Dhumal told Fairfax newspapers. “Two weeks is not that long a lockdown.”
