Australia’s proposed tour will begin on 4 September: Report | Instant News

Australia’s “bio-secure” tour in the UK consisting of three T20s and as many as ODI will begin on September 4, according to a report.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the tour will begin with T20 which will be played on 4, 6 and 8 September, followed by ODI on 10, 12 and 15 September.

As reported, the Australian team will fly in private jets to England and all six matches are expected to be played at Southampton and Old Trafford in Manchester.

Southampton and Manchester have hotels connected to the venue to accommodate two parties, match officials and broadcasters.

Both of these reasons are currently hosting the British-West Indies series, which has marked the resumption of international cricket, and will also be the venue for the next series against Pakistan.

Australian selectors named the starting list with 26 players last week, from which the final squad for the tour will be chosen.

Cricket Australia national team leader Ben Oliver has explained that the tour will be determined based on the restrictions that will be faced by Australian players in England and after they return home.

“Clearly the health and safety of players and staff and the component of public health are very important. Quarantine arrangements do not exist, they are not confirmed.

“They are clearly in terms of international travel at the moment so that is something we are working on but that is a consideration,” Oliver said.
