We prefer not to play back-to-back Tests in Sydney: Wade

Amidst the growing chatter surrounding India's reluctance to travel to Brisbane to play the final Test due to stricter quarantine protocols in the state, Matthew Wade has said that Australia wouldn't prefer moving the final Test. The final game of the four-match series is scheduled to be played from January 15 at the Gabba - a venue where India have never won a Test.

One of the options out there for India is to play back-to-back Tests in Sydney where the third Test begins on Thursday, with the touring party unhappy about undergoing another strict quarantine in Brisbane after the one that lasted 14 days upon their arrival in Australia. Sydney itself had recorded fresh COVID-19 cases not too long ago, which had put the third Test being played there in doubt. However, it was eventually given the green light

"I have not heard of this, but we obviously prefer not to (play back-to-back in Sydney)," said Wade on Sunday (January 3). "The schedule has been rolled out and we prefer to stick to that. Regardless, if that is a quarantine-based hotel, go to the ground, play and come back. Cricket Australia have been firm that they will stick to the schedule that we rolled out at the start of the summer so we fully expect to play at Gabba. There is no secret that we would love to play at Gabba. Harder quarantine and stricter biosecurity protocols will be there. But we are ready for more sacrifice and face more challenges.

"From our position, there is no uncertainty, we are going to play at the SCG and then playing at the Gabba until we are told that it is going to change. So, we are rolling to the next game expecting what is going to be. It is out of our control and there is nothing we can do," he added.
