Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) chief Stuart Fox has said that the MCG is ready for the first day night Test match between India and Australia in Adelaide due to the growing cases of Corona.
Corona case rising in Adelaide
In view of the increasing cases of Corona in South Australia, Premier Steven Marshall has said that all efforts are being made to ensure that the conditions are consistent and the match will be in Adelaide, but it cannot be guaranteed.
Reacting to his statement, Fox said that if the match is not held in Adelaide, then the MCG is ready for it. The second Test match of the series is to be played in the MCG itself from 26 December.
Apart from the MCG, the Sydney Cricket Ground has expressed a desire to have this match. LCG chief Tony Shepherd, however, has said that there should be no need to take up the matter as South Australia is capable of dealing with Corona.
The Indian team will play three ODIs, three T20 Internationals and four Test matches from November 27. The ODI and T20 series will be played in Sydney and Canberra from 27 November to 8 December. After this, the four-match Test series will begin from December 17.
