Nick Hockley, the interim CA CEO said that the BCCI secretary had confirmed that India has agreed to play at The Gabba. “I had a call last night from the BCCI secretary and he confirmed we are good to travel to Brisbane on Tuesday,” said Hockley on SEN Radio.
The BCCI had earlier said that they were reluctant to travel to Brisbane and would rather prefer to play two Test matches at a single venue. The BCCI wanted to complete the series quickly and have the players return home after a long tour.
“We aren’t keen on going to Brisbane if it means being stuck in the hotel again, except for going to the ground. Instead, we don’t mind being in some other city, playing both Test matches there to complete the series and returning home,” a BCCI source was quoted as saying.
India’s earlier stance
The BCCI had also clearly stated that India would not want to be in quarantine again at the end of the tour, especially after spending 14 days in quarantine in Dubai and flying straight to Australia. They did not want to spend too much time in the bubble.
“If you look at it, we were quarantined for 14 days in Dubai before landing in Sydney and doing so for another 14 days. That means we were in a hard bubble for nearly a month before coming out. What we don’t want now is to quarantine again at the end of the tour,” added the source. Check this solid cricket betting tips and tricks.
