There is good news coming in from Australia for all the cricket fans based in Australia as it has been confirmed that fans will be allowed during India’s tour of Australia specifically for the test series. It was earlier reported that with the COVID-19 pandemic into the play the Australian Cricket won’t be allowing any spectators on the ground for any of the tests.
As during the previous test series played amidst the COVID19 situation in England we observed biosecure bubbles coming into place due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Starting from the England vs West Indies and England vs Pakistan series, we witnessed players being kept in a bio-secure bubble for the entire duration of the tour. Similarly, even the IPL in the UAE was played with biosecure protocols into place.
