According to British media reports, England has pledged to travel to Australia for the Ashes Tour after resolving players’ concerns about the COVID-19 situation at a meeting between the National Cricket Team and England captain Joe Root on Tuesday.
Root confirmed at the meeting that he participated in the five test series, and it is likely that an all-around team will join Daily Telegraph According to reports, although the players expressed hesitation about touring in the COVID-19 “bubble”.

CA, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Australian authorities have been negotiating the travel conditions of a country for several months. Regardless of the COVID-19 vaccination status, international immigrants must be quarantined in a quarantine hotel for 14 days.

“They played a lot of cricket tests, so I can understand where they came from,” Vinci told reporters in a video call on Wednesday.
“When you add quarantine at the beginning and possibly at the end, guys spend much longer on the road than in the past (for) traveling. It’s difficult, but it’s nice to see Joe’s (root) support This, and they will come down.”
Australian media reported that before the first test began in Brisbane on December 8, the authorities were offering English players, staff and family members the opportunity to use Queensland’s Gold Coast resort for isolation.
