Melbourne: The third match of the four-match Test series against Australia is set to start in Brisbane on January 15. India has expressed their unwillingness to travel to Brisbane if further restrictions are imposed on their movement. The Indian team expressed distress that their movement will be absolutely cut down after reaching Brisbane.
The third Test match is starting at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on January 7. Instead of travelling to Brisbane, India are eager to play the final test match at the same place where the third Test match is going to be held.
Unfortunately, the five Indian Test players, including vice-captain Rohit Sharma, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, rising openers Shubham Gill, Prithvi Shaw, and Navdeep Saini have been put in isolation. After investigation, it has been revealed that the five players were found sitting at a table at a Melbourne restaurant on New Year’s day in a video posted by a fan on Twitter.
According to the bio-security COVID protocols, players are not allowed to eat in outdoor settings, ensuing the social distancing norms. They will not be allowed to train as followed by the bio-security protocols of Cricket Australia (CA).

On Sunday, Australia batsman Matthew Wade stated about there being “potentially harder quarantine or bio-security bubble in Brisbane than we have over here”. He also said they “fully expect” to play the fourth Test at the Gabba.
“No one knows the finals details about it yet but there will be a stricter protocol in Brisbane than here. We prefer not to sacrifice the Test at Brisbane, the schedule has been rolled out, there was some speculation in staying in Melbourne as well but we stuck to it, we fully expect to travel to Brisbane to play the fourth Test,” Matthew Wade said in a virtual media briefing. The four-match Test series is currently tied at 1-1.
