Australia vs India, 2020-21 – Dual Sydney Tests among CA’s contingency scenarios

Australia vs India, 2020-21 - Dual Sydney Tests among CA's


There’s now a possibility the Gabba may not host any Test this series

New South Wales would find itself hosting each of the final two Tests of the series against India at the SCG and Queensland left entirely empty-handed due to its closed southern border under one of the scenarios on the table as administrators wrestle with how to navigate the many complications created by the Covid-19 outbreak on Sydney’s northern beaches.

The number of cases in the outbreak appears to have stabilised, with daily totals of seven and eight recorded by NSW Health over the past two days, all but one linked to the same northern beaches cluster centred on Avalon. This bodes well in public health terms for the successful staging of major cricket matches from the second week of January onwards.

Even amid the current outbreak, the A-League is to launch its season with a match in Sydney on Wednesday night with at least 50% stadium capacity allowed. The larger problem for Cricket Australia, Cricket NSW and the SCG Trust is that of border closures, in particular between NSW and Queensland, where the Gabba is meant to host the fourth Test of the series, starting January 15.
