Aussie’s superstar batsman David Warner fears that team India will not be able to play the boxing Day Test match in Melbourne as COVID-19 cases are rising rapidly in Australia’s second largest city.
The Test match will start from December 26 & will be played before 10000 fans at Melbourne Cricket Ground & large number of television audiences. However Warner expressed the possibility of shifting the venue with Melbourne currently in a partial lockdown as Victoria state struggles to combat second wave of virus infections.
“It’s out of our control at the moment. Whatever happens, if you put something in place now, it’s going to change tomorrow,” Warner said.
“It’s difficult to process. We’re just going to have to wait and, yeah, you might see the first Boxing Day Test not in Melbourne”, Warner added.
Warner’s remark came after the authorities in Victoria on Tuesday confirmed that there were 384 new cases in the state with the total active cases being more than 9,000.
