Sydney will remain the venue for Australia’s third test against India next month despite the COVID-19 outbreak in the city’s northern beach suburbs, Cricket Australia (CA) said in a news conference on Wednesday (December 30).
Australia’s most populous state of New South Wales (NSW) reported three new cases on Tuesday (December 29) but CA decided against changing the venue.
The Melbourne Cricket Ground was kept on standby to host back-to back matches against India, who won the traditional Boxing Day test at the MCG by eight wickets on Tuesday.
The four-test series is level at 1-1 ahead of the third match in Sydney starting on Jan. 7.
