Australia vs India: Fourth And Final Test To Be Played In Brisbane, Confirms Cricket Australia


Sydney: The fourth and final Test of the ongoing series between Australia and India will be played at the Gabba in Brisbane from January 15 to 19, confirmed Cricket Australia on Monday.

CA interim CEO Nick Hockley said the Board of Cricket for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed that the Indian team will be travelling to Brisbane on Tuesday.

There was a cloud over the Test being held in Brisbane due to the strict Covid restrictions in place in the city.

“The fourth Test will be at the Gabba, as planned,” Nick Hockley said

“We have been working closely with Queensland Health to ensure our strong biosecurity plans guarantees the fourth Test at The Gabba is played safely,” Hockley said in a statement.

Throughout the season, we have developed a strong track record for a safe and responsible return to sport thanks to our well-established bio-security protocols, the ongoing support from public health officials and the incredible hard work of so many people across Australian cricket.

“I want to thank the Queensland Government for their cooperation and willingness to working closely with CA and the BCCI so we can deliver the fourth Test as planned, but more importantly delivering on a plan that places the safety and wellbeing of the players, match officials and the wider community as a top priority,” he added.

Cricket Australia also informed that 50 per cent of the total crowd capacity will be allowed at the Gabba during the Test match.
