The matches will most likely be played behind closed doors and in biosecure venues in the view of coronavirus. Though Cricket Australia is preparing to host the Indian team, the permission of both the governments would be required for the tour to take place. CA is heavily relying on the Border Gavaskar Trophy to compensate for the loss from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

According to 7News, The Gabba in Brisbane won the hosting rights for the marquee Test, which is now scheduled to be played from December 3. Adelaide, Melbourne, and Sydney are the other venues that will host the remaining matches in the series. The India tour of Australia is worth $300 million.

As quoted by ICC, Starc said, “I think absolutely a pink-ball Test in the series against India is great thing. The fans love it. I think it creates a different aspect to the contest, bat and ball are closer together in that contest.”

He further added, “India played a pink-ball game in India so they’re not completely foreign to it … It’d be great to have a pink-ball contest in that series. From the little bits I’ve seen and heard, India is very much open to that as well so that’s fantastic.”
