After next year series in India i think in February its 4 tests.I went along as I’m a big test cricket fan and wouldn’t miss it. If you lived in Perth you’d know it’s a pretty cricket savvy public and know when they’re being shafted. McGowan knocked back an ashes test. Interesting attitude. he just said cricket players have to follow the same COVID rules as normal people and the English didn’t want to do the quarantine. Had the first test been scheduled in Perth the next tests could have been played unaffected.
Definitely annoyed CA wasn’t able to schedule a 5 test series against India tho, no reason not to other than India not wanting to. One of a number of fails of CA( and WACA too tbh)
But after that every Border-Gavaskar series moving forward after that will be 5 tests so Brisbane & Perth will be both guaranteed tests every time India play now.
Both CA & BCCI agreed to it earlier this year.
