In the face of the catastrophe of losing the SCG test, Cricket NSW has made a great offer to Cricket Australia.
The amazing practice of maintaining and winning strict interstate border policies while maintaining and winning Queensland’s marquee sporting events could be left in 2020.
The latest COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney has forced Cricket Australia to rethink the rest of the schedule for the Australia-India test series, and Cricket NSW has proposed a serious solution.
Faced with the potential to lose the traditional New Year’s test at SCG, NSW authorities now want to host two matches.
Exceptional suggestions come after the positive cases stabilize on Thursdays and Fridays with a total of 7 and 8 daily.
As a result, Cricket NSW became bullish on the SCG test scheduled for January 7, but was fourth and last in the series as Queensland could continue to close its border with Sydney. I am also aiming for a match.
In that scenario, the second Pink Ball match will be held at SCG starting January 15th. – The proposed move is willingly rejected by India due to the provision of spin-friendly conditions.
“You can run two tests if you want, but that’s not a problem at all,” Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust Chairman Tony Shepherd told Nine.
A series of matches at MCG, which hosts Boxing Day tests, also took place before heading to Gaba for the final match, but Shepherd hasn’t entertained the idea.
“We have made it clear that Cricket Australia is flexible. It’s a shame to lose the Sydney test,” he said.
“And it’s backed by the Government of New South Wales …
“New South Wales is Australia’s cricket center in terms of participation, elite end and community level players. We have the largest Indian immigrants in Australia.
“SCG is Australia’s most historic place and the second historic place in the world. It’s a special place. The Government of New South Wales has been very supportive and successful in making this game a success. I will do everything I can to do it. “
Australian spinner Nathan Lion wants to be in Sydney.
“Cricket Australia knows it’s doing its best to have its third test match in Sydney,” Lyonnais said.
“Hopefully everything goes well in Sydney, and more importantly, many people are safe and well, and a finger that passes a test match can be an SCG.”
