Cricket Australia still hopeful for summer of crowds

Cricket Australia is still eyeing packed-out stadiums for this summer’s headline Test series against India as the country emerges from the coronavirus.

The Border-Gavaskar Trophy generally attracts the second biggest Test crowds behind the Ashes in Australia, with an average of almost 25,000 attending each day in 2018-19.

The first Test of the series is still five-and-a-half months away, with the Gabba to host the clash from December 3.

At this stage there are no federal guidelines for Australia’s big grounds, with the Adelaide Oval, Gabba, MCG and SCG among the biggest in the country.
