Preamble

Hello everyone and welcome to the live coverage of the third day of the Boxing Day Ash Test. We are in class at Melbourne Cricket Ground at 10:30 am local time (11:30 pm UK).

Much like Australia’s attack slicing England’s mid-order, we’re going to sidestep any opening banter and dive right into the news this morning. Following yesterday’s Covid epidemic in the English camp, other cases were identified during the tour following PCR tests, but for now the match and the series continue.

Covid Ashes: England’s afflicted actually increased by two … now sits at 3 x support staff and 3 x family members … but the game / tour continues for now with everyone else returning negative PCR test results


December 27, 2021

here is Ali Martin’s report this morning. There will undoubtedly be more news coming out of the CWM as the day progresses as eventualities are discussed regarding the final two tests of the tour.


When asked on Monday if the tour was in danger, Nick Hockley, managing director of Cricket Australia, replied: “No. That’s what protocols are for. We are extremely vigilant as there are more and more cases in the community, but our protocols are designed for absolutely this set of events.

I will come back with more information shortly, but if you would like to participate you can reach me via email or Twitter (@JPHowcroft).
