Australia vs Afghanistan Test 2020 Live Streaming
Afghanistan will play its first Test against Australia in Perth later this year. Discussions between the two boards on holding the only Test on the field from December 6 are in the final stages. The only test between Australia vs Afghanistan is scheduled to start from 6th December 2020. Willow Tv, Fox Sports, Sony Ten, Sony Six, and Sky Sports are the official broadcaster of Australia vs Afghanistan Test 2020 Live streaming.
According to the ESPN report, the two boards have not yet reached a final decision on whether the match will be played day or night. According to the ICC FTP, Australia was supposed to host Rashid Khan soon after the postponed T20 World Cup.
Almost all the boards are busy with the new schedule of the suspended bilateral series due to the coronavirus. The only Test between Australia and Afghanistan is almost certain. According to the earlier possible schedule, the only Test was scheduled to start on November 21.
However, the BCCI is going to host the IPL in this spare time as the T20 World Cup has been postponed due to the Corona effect. Which will start on 19th September and end on 10th November? When the IPL ends on November 10, the Aussie cricketers will have to return to the country and stay in quarantine for 14 days as per the government instructions.
As a result, it is not possible to host the Test match with Afghanistan as per the previous schedule. That’s why the match is going back to the first week of December. Meanwhile, Australia will have to host a long series of Tests, ODIs, and T20s against India at the end of the year.
The ESPN reports that the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has expressed reluctance to play day and night matches. Afghanistan, who have played just four Tests so far, have also asked for a few warm-up matches in Australia.
The match will not be considered part of the Test Championship as Afghanistan is not in the top 9 of the Test rankings. Afghanistan has won two of the four Tests, losing. Despite losing against India and West Indies, they have won two matches against Bangladesh and Ireland.
