Although the Coronavirus pandemic has not culminated, the BCCI and Cricket Australia have started planning for the year-end India tour of Australia. In case you did not know, the Indian team is set to tour Australia for an ICC World Test Championship series after the T20 World Cup would have ended.
Unfortunately, the T20 World Cup may not happen as per the original plans as there is a huge question mark over India tour of Australia also. However, because of the huge amount of money involved in the TV deals, Cricket Australia is optimistic about the future as they have asked BCCI to get their team ready.
Virat Kohli also said that the team is ready to play after staying in quarantine for two weeks in Australia.
Preparatory Camps coming back for the Indian team
The Indian team had canceled its preparatory camps for the overseas tours because it put immense pressure on the tight schedule of the players. A preparatory camp is a small camp that allows the players to get adjusted to the time and conditions in foreign countries.
Here’s what the sources close to this development told Sportskeeda:
“But tomorrow if the team management would ask for a camp, BCCI is ready,” a source said while adding Sourav Ganguly himself used to call for such camps before major series as a captain and also picked bowlers from all over the country to attend them.
“A coach like Kumble always advocated a camp before a major series and now it is up to Shastri to put his foot down and organise one. Due to lack of match exposure, the team may still ask for a camp before the Australian tour but thereafter it will re-run of what we are seeing in the last three years.”
