- The Indian team’s tour of Australia is scheduled between December this year and January next year.
- At present, the Australian government has closed all its borders due to Corona by 30 September.
The Australian government may waive travel restrictions for the Indian team’s tour by the end of this year. According to an ESPN Cricinfo report, the Australian government may take this decision to help Cricket Australia, which is struggling with economic difficulties. It has lost $ 300 million due to Corona. It has also laid off 80 percent of its workforce. The Indian team’s tour of Australia is scheduled from December this year to January next year.
Currently, the Australian government has sealed all limits to prevent corona infection by 30 September. In addition, all types of sporting events have also been banned. In such a situation, there is doubt about whether the Indian team will be able to visit Australia.
Cricket Australia expected to earn Rs 3815 crore from tour
Cricket Australia had requested the government to approve the tour of the Indian team. According to the report, the government had given a positive response to it. On the arrival of the Indian team, Cricket Australia was expected to earn Rs 3815 crore. A large amount of this comes from selling the rights to broadcast it on various channels. If the empty stadium matches for TV only, the loss will be reduced to 381.5 crores. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Friday that his government was considering every option to restore the Games.
