Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed that the Indian cricket team will travel to Brisbane in Gabba for the fourth and final Test.
Talking to SEN Radio, Cricket Australia’s interim CEO Nick Hawley revealed that he got a call from the BCCI secretary who confirmed that the Indian team will travel to Brisbane.
“I had a call last night from the BCCI secretary and he confirmed we are good to travel to Brisbane on Tuesday,” Hockley said
Earlier, the Indian team showed reluctance to travel to Brisbane – where the COVID-19 protocols are strict. This piece of news should come as a relief to the fans as there was also talk of the Test being called off.
Things got complicated after Queensland closed its border in Greater Sydney due to the COVID-19 outbreak that erupted before Christmas. The Indian side showed reluctance to travel to Brisbane, making sharp comments on the health minister, raising several controversies as the fate of the test hangs in the balance.
According to reports, India will travel to Brisbane on Tuesday, a day after the third Test in Sydney. After the completion of the fourth and final Test, the team will leave for India immediately.
Meanwhile, India is in a troubled state in the third Test in Sydney. Tourists want to save the exam on the last day.
