Australia to quarantine in Adelaide after returning from England


Sydney: Australia’s limited-overs squad will quarantine at a hotel, attached to Adelaide Oval after they return from England, which ends next week, Cricket Australia (CA) said on Saturday.

Australian players will be able to train at Adelaide Oval throughout their mandatory period of collective isolation.

South Australia has been relatively successful at containing the spread of the new coronavirus and Adelaide has been mooted as one of the more likely destinations for the Indian players when they touch down in Australia for the series.

“We are happy that we are able to assist the Australian men’s cricket team on their return to South Australia and at Adelaide Oval in the Oval Hotel,” Keith Bradshaw of the South Australian Cricket Association said in a statement.

“Our hope is that the Oval Hotel can continue to be used in the successful staging of international cricket this season,” it added.
