After England Bowlers started its training to prepare for the fixture against West Indies, Cricket Australia believes it can tour England for a limited-over series. The Cricket Australia CEO also expressed his certainty over Indian Tour of Australia.
Australia is supposed to host India for a four test match series later this year. The series is currently under the cloud of coronavirus but the Australian CEO Kevin Roberts believes there is nothing such uncertainty over the series and if he has to mark the certainty he would mark 9 in a scale of 10.
Indian Tour of Australia is fully certain
Talking about the Indian Tour of Australia, the Cricket Australia CEO said there’s nothing that is fully certain but he will surely be surprised if the tour couldn’t get away.
“I guess there’s no such thing as certainty in today’s world so I can’t say 10 (out of 10), but I’m going to say nine out of 10,” Roberts said when asked about the prospects of India touring,” Cricket.com.au quoted Kevin as saying.
He further expressed his optimism about having a series under normal series and hoped that there’d be a full stadium crowd from beginning of the series.
“With the variable being, who would know whether we can have crowds … I’d be really surprised if we can’t get the Indian tour away. But I wouldn’t, hand on heart suggest we’ll have full crowds from the start. We’ll just have to see how that goes.”
Hopeful to tour England
The England bowlers have return to their individual training session on Thursday and this makes Kevin Roberts optimistic about England Tour.
“I think there’s some chance we could send a team over,” an optimistic Roberts told News Corp which is quoted by Cricket Australia’s digital media. He also maintained that Players’ safety is paramount and it can’t be jeopardised.
Notably, a six limited over match has been scheduled for Australia in the month of July against England at England but the coronavirus pandemic posed some serious question before boards on playing the series at its originally scheduled time.
