Cricket Australia is set to provisionally announce that the MCG will host the traditional Boxing Day Test match in 2020, subject to coronavirus restrictions. The Adelaide Oval will be designated the back-up venue if the MCG has to be ruled out. The rate of community transmission of COVID-19 will determine if the MCG hosts the second Test of the four-match series against India, with a final decision likely to be made in November. The MCG is expected to have a reduced crowd capacity of between 20,000 and 30,000 per day for the match, with social distancing rules to be enforced.
