Ashes 2021-22 Covid 19: No haircuts and fan interactions for Players ahead of the Melbourne and Sydney Test

Ashes 2021-22 Covid 19: Restrictions will be raised to Level 4 for the next two Ashes texts due to increasing number of Covid cases.

Covid-19 cases in Australia are on the rise and Australian Cricket is taking some strict steps towards the Ashes. Due to increasing cases in Sydney and Melbourne, restrictions will be raised to Level-4 for the next two Ashes texts. NSW recorded a new unwelcome record with 2482 new cases on Saturday, while Victoria recorded 1504.

Pat Cummins failed the second test, while Mitchell Starc and Nathan Lyon were also at risk. Starc & Lyon were in the same restaurant as Cummins, but they sat outside. If both go inside, it is likely that Australia will take a big hit.

In the run-up to the Melbourne and Sydney exams, there will be some restrictions on players. They will not be allowed to cut their hair, and working out at public gyms is also prohibited. Players are also unlikely to be allowed to sign autographs or take selfies with fans before and during the next two matches.

England and Australia stars will be banned from joining crowds and will isolate themselves in a team bubble to avoid a single player or players being disqualified.

Cricket Australia will still allow players to dine outdoors in their groups of three so as not to subject them to prolonged post-pandemic quarantine for cricketers, with the game’s governing body being mindful of health their psyche.

Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockley has confirmed that players are unable to interact with fans.

“We are always on high alert,” Hockley told SEN radio.

“I think it’s a wake-up call for everyone in the game. It’s a wake-up call for sport. It is not unique to sport in Australia or globally. We are seeing a bit of a disruption.

“People now need to be extra vigilant as we have had a very high disruptive case.

“That’s where we need to make sure there’s social distancing, so we’re asking people to be respectful in public.

“It’s a real shame because what we’ve seen is the players want to interact with the fans. It’s a feature of Big Bash. But now we have very clear protocols.

“For the people on the field, we need to make sure that everyone is operating in a way that is truly biosafe.” Ashes 2021-22 Covid 19: No haircuts and fan interactions for Players ahead of the Melbourne and Sydney Test
