Australia and India are currently in Melbourne, where the second Test match of the four-match Test series is to be played from Saturday. At the same time, the third test is to be held in Sydney and the fourth and final test is in Brisbane.
Cricket Australia (CA) has reiterated once again that the third Test match between India and Australia will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) despite the Corona Virus epidemic continuing in Sydney’s northern coasts. The CA, however, said that in the event of a dire situation in Sydney over Corona, he is looking at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) as the backup venue for the third Test.
