The Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) is all set to organize the Aus vs Ind Pink Day Test. The reason for organizing the third Vodafone test at SCG is the rising cases of COVID-19 entering from Sydney’s northern coast.
As the officials of Cricket Australia (CA) have focused on the COVID-19 outbreak that slid down a bit, the cricket matches were resumed to normal in the country.
The high-alerts as of now have forced the officials to standby Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) from hosting back-to-back Tests.
“Despite the many challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, I am delighted to say Cricket Australia remains on track to deliver the men’s international series as scheduled,” Hockley said.
“We have met regularly over the past week to assess the unfolding public health situation in Sydney and gauge its impact on border restrictions around the country. To date, we have been able to deliver a safe and successful summer thanks to our detailed biosecurity protocols and the amazing work of so many great people behind the scenes.
“To that end, we have made the decision to keep the New Year’s Test at the SCG, which has a wonderful recent history of hosting the Pink Test and Jane McGrath Day on the third day of play.

The new year’s pink day test is used for raising funds for the McGrath foundation that leads to breast cancer support and educational charity. The former Australian bowler, Glenn McGrath, who lost his first wife due to disease, was reckoned to help those suffering from a similar disease.
Notably, the third test match is all set to get started by 7th January. The two teams have winded up two tests out of four and the series is leveled by 1-1 as of now.
