Travis Head arrives in Coffs Harbour
Adelaide Strikers captain Travis Head spoke to media today in Coffs Harbour prior to a training session at C.ex Coffs International Stadium.
On Tuesday, the SA-based KFC Big Bash League players flew to Coffs Harbour before the South Australia coronavirus lockdown could jeopardise the domestic and international schedules.
The Strikers, along with players from the Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers, will remain and train in Coffs Harbour under strict protocols, until a future course of action becomes clear.
The Strikers' first match of BBL|10 is currently scheduled for 13 December against the Hobart Hurricanes at Blundstone Arena.
Nick Hockley, Cricket Australia’s Interim CEO, this week said actions were taken to ensure the summer schedule would not be compromised by recently announced border restrictions.
“CA has taken a pro-active approach and mobilised a number of people across the country to shore up our men’s domestic and international schedules.
“I would like to thank the players and staff for their understanding regarding the changes to their travel schedules and for their commitment to ensuring the summer of cricket is a huge success.
“I would also like to thank the various leadership groups across Australian cricket for coming together and taking quick, decisive action – made possible by thorough, cross-department contingency planning.
“CA will continue to monitor the situation in South Australia and the resulting border restrictions around the country."
