However, the President of the BCCI Sourav Ganguly said Saturday that he wants a reduced quarantine period for Indian players, confirming the series against Australia. Australia has checked the spread of the coronavirus only in Melbourne, the second largest city, in which there is a recent surge of cases. “Ya, ya, we confirmed that the tour. In December, we will have to wait. We just hope that the number of quarantine days reduced slightly, Ganguly announced today channel India.
“Because we don’t want players to go that far and sit in a hotel for two weeks. It’s very, very depressing and disappointing”.
“And as I said Australia and New Zealand was in a good position, with the exception of Melbourne. So from this point of view, we will and I hope the quarantine days will be less and we can get back to cricket.”

Virat Kohli India are planning a trip to Australia for four test matches in December-January. India have won four test series in Australia 2-1 in 2018-19. “It will be a tough series. It’s not going to be what it was two years ago. It will be a strong Australia, but our team is so good,” said Ganguly.
“We have the batting, we have a bowling alley. We just need better bat. You are the best team abroad bat well.
“When we were so successful in England, in Australia, in Pakistan, we were to 400-500-600 in the friendlies. I said that the Virat”.
The victory of the series in India two years ago was the first in Australia after 71 years of trying. But Australia was without top batsmen David Warner and Steve Smith, who missed a series due to their fraud prohibitions.
Ganguly has backed his side to win under the guidance if so.
“Because you Virat Kohli your standards high. When you go out to play when you go out with your team, I look at the TV, did not expect you just to play well against Australia. I expect you to win,” said the former captain of India.
“So you must live according to the standards. For the captaincy it will be a series of milestone – more than the World Cup”.
