Cricket: Indian team reportedly agree to Brisbane test against Australia, despite COVID-19 lockdown

The Indian cricket team have reportedly given their Brisbane test against Australia the all-clear, assuring Cricket Australia they will travel to Queensland on Tuesday.

The status of the fourth and final test has been uncertain, with claims from the Indian camp that they wanted the match played in Sydney.

At the centre of their concerns was the strict COVID-19 quarantine protocols that would see players and staff confined to hotel rooms for three days. 

But Fox Sport reports the test will go ahead as planned, after a positive conversation between Cricket Australia and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Players will apparently be permitted to mingle within the confines of the hotel, which contravenes Queensland's quarantine controls.

Police will not patrol floors the team stay on, with Cricket Australia hiring the entire hotel complex.

The GABBA is a proven fortress for Australia, with an undefeated test match run of 21 matches over 32 years - the longest at any venue for any test match side in world cricket.
