England Could Boycott Ashes Due To Strict Bubble Life: Reports

England is slated to take on arch-rivals in one of the prestigious Ashes against Australia starting from 8th December. There are some reports that visitors might boycott the biggest event due to strict bubble life.

The English players do not want to confine to their hotel rooms 4 months due to quarantine rules in Australia. It will be a major blow if the high-profile Ashes series gets postponed or England sends an under-strength side.

Australia are currently the holders of Ashes as they won the 4th Test of the 2019 edition played in England under the captaincy of Tim Paine.

“While the players appear, in general, sanguine about the prospect of a two-week quarantine for themselves, they are reluctant to put their families through it. And with some players away for the best part of four months (the IPL being followed by the T20 World Cup and the Ashes), they are understandably reluctant not to see their families for the entire period,” it stated.

Ashes is one of the oldest tournaments between two arch-rivals. Under the captaincy of Tim Paine, Australia was stunned by a second-string Indian side losing by 1-2. On other hand, England struggled in their home den losing to New Zealand by 0-1 and trailing 1-2 in 4 completed Test matches as the fifth Test match was canceled due to the COVID outbreak.

“There is also a possibility the squad will be obliged to remain in some sort of ‘bubble’ throughout the tour to avoid difficulties in moving between states. Families, meanwhile, could still be required to undergo a ‘hard’ quarantine involving 14 days in a hotel room,” it also reported.

England and Australia were involved in a thrilling Ashes series in 2019 where the series was drawn at 2-2 but due to Australia winning it last time, they retained the prestigious tournament.
