Australian International Summer 2020/21

Postby FlyingHigh » Mon May 04, 2020 11:05 am

Cricket in the 20/21 summer?

Apparently WI and ENG are going to still try to play their series without crows, strict lockdown etc, so a lot could depend on that.

I'm very doubtful the 20-20 World Cup will go ahead when scheduled. Maybe they will push it back a couples months?

What are the chances that by next summer international travel is still very restricted, and given the cultural similarities and success in dealing with Coronavirus, Aust and NZ borders are freely open to each other, and we have a five-test series against them, or maybe 3 here, 3 there (hopefully all just the one 6-test series).
What is more attractive, and dare I ask profitable, an India series without crowds, or an NZ series with them?

From a cricket point of view, I reckon an NZ series is just as enticing as they would be hell-bent on making amends for last year, and it would be good to see some of their players get the chance to redeem their reputations.

I think any sort of travel during this pandemic and playing to no crowds is an insult to everyone.

My first thought was surely it's best to play with crowds. A thought which was reinforced when I remembered the spectacle of Australia playing Pakistan in the UAE in front of 3 people and a camel.

It was a well respected camel though.

Absolutely I agree.

Although, despite asking the question, I don't know why people would be allowed to attend an NZ Test and not an Indian one :oops:

I just see NZ and Australia opening borders to each other before any other country, and with all the uncertainty with travel and sport between every one else, I hope CA are working on this contingency.

I cant see why all the international teams cant arrive 14 days earlier and go into isolation., Its not as though they will have prior committments.

On the Indian Test series, i think the TV rights to it will make it more than worth while to play without crowds. I think there is no chance of either events getting cancelled or even moved. CA will be very keen to kick the AFL off their grounds as soon as the traditional change over period starts.

Big talk Adelaide Oval will be the perfect set up for all the tests with the new hotel being built.
That hotel could end up being a masterstroke along with SA's great record with covid.

I'm expecting international travel to still have restrictions well past 2020.
Agreed its going to be fairly bleak if we still have domestic restrictions in December.

Domestic travel is what I meant.
The Indian cricket team would still most likely face 2 weeks of quarantine when they arrive in the country but by then hopefully domestic borders are all open

Hopefully. if the Eastern states keep dragging the chain I hope they remain closed, Marshall is copping heat already to re-open them, good on him for standing firm.
