England’s Tour of India 2021 Announced
The BCCI and the English cricket board announced England’s Tour of India 2021. The tour will start with a series of test matches in Chennai. Chennai will also be the organizing venue for the second test. While the remaining 2 tests will be played in Motera in Ahmedabad. An interesting fact about this series is that one of the tests that will take place in Motera will be day and night in nature.
After, the test series, they will play the T20 series. The 5 match T20 series will take place in Ahmedabad. But wait, there is an upcoming ODI series as well. This will be in Pune. You might be surprised that the matches will take place in only three venues. This is due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic situation. We applaud this decision of the BCCI. Nothing is more important than the health of the players.
We hope that the medical teams of both teams will take adequate health-related measures to make sure that there is no outbreak of Covid-19. Both the cricket boards have reiterated their stance on the Covid-19 situation and have assured the fans that the series will be conducted in a Bio-secure environment.
The Indian cricket team as of now is on a tour of Australia and is about to start playing the coveted Border-Gavaskar Trophy. England meanwhile was on a tour of South Africa. Which got abandoned due to players getting infected with the coronavirus.
We hope that England’s Tour of India 2021 which has been announced does not get abandoned like that. Current India vs Australia series is going well and all precautions are being taken. To ensure the safety of both the Indian and Australian players.
Hopefully, fans will enjoy this thrill ride of a tour in the upcoming year.
