Seeing the cricketing world getting massively affected by the outbreak of COVID-19, it is hard to see many series going as per the schedule. While it reduces the amount of cricket available for fans, cricket boards are getting dented by loss of millions of dollars.
To counter the muddle, many cricket bodies would look to expand the cricketing action once things get a little better. In this regard, Cricket Australia is discussing the prospects of holding a five-match Test series against India for the tour originally scheduled to happen in December and January.
Moreover, Kevin Roberts, Chief Executive of Cricket Australia, said that his board will consider all the possible options to host India, which includes playing all games at a single venue if it comes to that.
It is important to note that the land of Kangaroos is all set to host the upcoming edition of the T20 World Cup, slated to run from October 18 to November 15. It all remains to be seen as the current scenario doesn’t look promising with a continuous and exponential increase in the number of Coronavirus cases.
