Hopefully Perth. Tassie is now closing its borders again too. And in fact they've had as hard a boarder as WA, so they can get ****ed too.

Plus it's gonna rain all summer in Sydney so we can't do two draws here.

Tassie's tainted by their association to Tim Paine anyway

pretty clearly Melbourne v Canberra. it would be pretty funny to see Melbourne knocked back for Canberra

Would usually agree but it probably doesn't hold enough to hold an Ashes Test.

I think they'll probably just stay in Sydney.

anderson would take twenty wickets in a la nina at hobart after taking none in the first four tests so hobart's out because cricket australia are cowards who don't play home games on pitches that don't suit them

i mean if hobart people wanted test matches maybe they could have actually attended one at any point in the last decade

yeah but do you think i'm approaching this from the perspective of what's best for CA's coffers or what's best for shady slim

I just wish that Bangladesh or Zimbabwe would get a match in Sydney not in school holidays and see how many people turn up.
Give the match to Hobart if it can’t be played in Perth.

off the top of my head they've had tests against NZ and SA in the last ten years, teams consistently pushing to be one of the top three or four sides in the world and competing at the pointy end for major honours in LO cricket. they can't complain about not having good enough opposition to come watch.
