The deadly corona virus outbreak is also increasing in South Australia. In such a situation, CA sent Test team captain Tim Paine, to New South Wales (NSW), to avoid any danger. Both players were airlifted from Adelaide to Sydney (capital of New South Wales). Western Australia, Queensland and Tasmania closed their borders with South Australia on Monday. Australia brought the A players to Sydney so that they could avoid heavy financial losses while retaining the upcoming series.

CA prepared a huge budget for the bio-bubble of the upcoming series in order to maintain a relationship with Seven West Media and preserve broadcasting rights. Channel Seven had recently threatened to withdraw from the Rs 1600 crore deal, accusing CA of not giving preference to the Big Bash League.
