Brisbane: Australia's limited overs team captain Aaron Finch said that his team is ready to live in a bio-safe environment in order to keep global cricket going despite the Corona virus. Australia's tour of England next month will be a completely new experience for this opener. During this period, he will lead a 21-member team that will play three T20 Internationals and one-day matches. 

Strict lockdown is in force in Victoria due to the increase in Kovid-19 cases. This is the beginning of being isolated for Finch on the tour as the Australian team will have to live in a bio-safe environment like the West Indies and Pakistani teams to play matches in England in the coming week. When Finch attended an online press conference on Tuesday, he had already made it clear that his dog could bark from behind and that he would have to remain silent if that happened. This happened twice and at the end of the press conference he smiled and apologized. 

Finch said that it would not be an issue for his team to follow the rules which would leave from Australia on Sunday. The players who will be touring England also include players who are to participate in the Indian Premier League (IPL) starting on 19 September. He will have to remain in seclusion even before the series against India on his return to Australia. 

Finch said, "It is more important to remember that we are in a position to help sustain global cricket and there can be no greater motivation." He said, 'There are thousands of people associated with the cricket world who are working to ensure international cricket. We give credit to those who are engaged in adapting the whole situation. '
