MCG offers to host first Test after COVID-19 outbreak at Adelaide

Cricket Australia Committed To Host Day Night Test In Adelaide Despite Fresh Covid Cases In South Australia

Twenty cases are now linked to the original cluster, with another 14 considered at high risk of infection.

But players from Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania - who have been forced to self-isolate as per their states' rules regarding anybody who recently travelled from Adelaide - touched down in Sydney long before their planned arrival on Sunday.

The Adelaide Strikers and South Australia-based players from other BBL squads too have been moved to a training base in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales.

CA is also likely to rejig the itinerary of its Australia A squad, which includes Test captain Tim Paine, as it seeks to avoid more logistical headaches before a tour game in Sydney starts on December 6.

As a result of the mass airlift, the likes of Paine, Labuschagne, Wade, Head, and Green bid a quick farewell to their family and friends.

The first match of the three-match ODI series between India and Australia is to be played in Sydney on 27 November.

He said all cases could be traced back to an Australian who arrived in the state from overseas on Nov 2 and entered mandatory quarantine in a hotel. There have been questions over whether the series opening first Test between India and Australia will go ahead as per the fixture but CA has allayed those fears saying the match is on as of now.

South Australia has reported a surge in coronavirus cases which has prompted other neighbouring states including Western Australia, Queensland and Tasmania closing their borders with it.

CA said it remains "committed to hosting" the first Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against India in Adelaide.

"I would like to thank the players and staff for their understanding regarding the changes to their travel schedules and for their commitment to ensuring the summer of cricket is a huge success".

"We will continue to provide updates as the situation evolves and look forward to hosting a safe and successful summer across all formats".

Cricket Australia further confirmed that "none of the players in Adelaide for the Marsh Sheffield Shield visited the "hot spots" identified by SA Health".
