Corona threatens first test of India-Australia!

Sydney: Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood indicated that the first Test played in pink ball in Adelaide against India was held in Brisbane if India needed to change the venue due to rising cases of Kovid-19 in South Australia. Can be done with the ball.

Pink ball is used for day and night test while normal test match is played with red ball.

Hazlewood stated that his teammates have no problem keeping Gaba (in Brisbane) as a backup venue. He, however, said that he hoped that the first Test to be held from December 17 to 21 would be in Adelaide as per the pre-determined schedule.

He said, ‘The longer we wait, the heat will increase there, so the fast bowlers will be happy to have a match there in December’.

Hazelwood said (Josh Hazlewood), ‘Of course there (Brisbane) we have a very good record and that is a great place to start the series’.

Adelaide has seen an increase in cases of corona virus infection in the last few days due to which South Australia had to announce a six-day lockdown. With this, questions have also been raised on the practicality of organizing the first match of the series of four tests in the city.

Hazlewood said that during the series, pink ball should not be used on any ground other than Adelaide.

He said, ‘He (curator Damian Hogg) has prepared the perfect wicket for the Pink Test in Adelaide. Some grounds in Australia are quite strict like Gaba or Perth. The wickets here are very stiff for the pink ball, after certain time the ball will become very soft.

Josh Hazlewood said, ‘The first Test can be in Melbourne or Brisbane or elsewhere with a red ball, then we can play in Adelaide later in the summer season. According to the information so far, there is still a good possibility of organizing in Adelaide but it can be changed. We hope that the final decision will be taken in the next one or two weeks’.
