5th Test England v India has been cancelled due to Covid
Knock on effect to the Ashes seems to be inevitable.

"While the ECB are adamant the tour will go ahead, the prospect of a second-string England side competing in the Ashes is real. Whether that is deemed to compromise the integrity of the events remains to be seen."

The players don't want another two weeks of quarantine in Australia and they certainly don't want their families to go through that.

Plenty of conjecture and speculation at the moment , keep reading multiple players are considering not touring but the only name commonly mentioned is Buttler.

Not too many of their Test Squad will be involved in IPL & WC so they have a reasonable break now until November.

Of the 18 named in their preliminary WC Squad , 9 are playing IPL (Ali , Billings , S Curran , Jordan , Livingstone , Morgan , Rashid , Roy , T Curran (res)

Not sure how many of them will make the touring Squads for Australia.

I guess with the Lions Squad as well , they could have maybe upward of 25-30 coming out.

It's not like they will have to quarantine in Howard Springs either , talk is resorts on the Gold Coast with "relaxed" restrictions , I guess those with families will find it tougher though.
