The cricket world has marked its resumption after the halt caused by COVID-19, and the series will be lined up for teams one at a time. After successfully completing IPL 2020 in the UAE, Team India will travel to Australia for a series in all three formats. Tourists will be staying in Sydney for almost a month from November 12th. According to the latest reports, all possible formalities are clear and the team will fly to Sydney.
The Men in Blue are expected to fly down under on a charter flight on the 11th or 12th of next month. It was stated that the entire selected squad would travel in one shift along with the support staff for all game formats. In order to simplify the further process, the Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) has already asked the trainer Ravi Shastri along with all the support staff to touch Dubai before the end of October.
The players who want to fly to Australia and are not part of the cash-rich league must also land in Dubai before Sunday. After completing the mandatory quarantine, they can start their training sessions before the team leaves Dubai after the IPL final. India will land in Sydney on either November 11th or 12th and then go straight to the 12-day quarantine. During the quarantine process, the players are allowed to train at SCG.
India does not yet have a clothing sponsor for a tour of Australia
According to reports in InsideSport, all six games would be played by ODIs and T20Is in both games Sydney and Canberra. The capital of Australia takes about 3 hours from Sydney. To match the reports of the Australian media, the White Ball series would run from November 26th to December 8th. Adelaide (December 17th), MCG (December 26th), SCG (January 7th) and Gabba (January 15th) were completed as four test locations.
Meanwhile, it is also becoming clear that India has not received any apparel sponsorship after its deal with Nike ended last month. It appears that Virat Kohli and his men will fly to the foreign land without a sponsor for their game outfit. However, the BCCI is trying its best to take the necessary precautions.
