Melbourne: After 3 days of rest and leisure after winning the Boxing Day Test, Team India has started practice for the Sydney Test match. The Indian team is still in Melbourne and after practicing here on Saturday and Sunday it will leave for Sydney.
In the city of Sydney, due to Coronavirus, the situation seems to be deteriorating again. It is feared that the third Test can be played without the audience. Given this situation, both teams are still in Melbourne, where the situation is normal.

Berala and Smithfield, located 30 km from the SCG, are on alert.
There are discussions to make wearing of masks compulsory in these areas and there is also talk of not inviting the audience in the match starting on 7th. It doesn’t have to be seen whether it happens. We will come to know from the premiere of New South Wales later in the day.
