The five-match Ashes series between Australia and England is starting from Wednesday, 8 December, but a day before that, the visiting team England has suffered a major setback. The England team has suffered a major setback in the form of fast bowler James Anderson, who has been ruled out of the first Test match of the Ashes series due to injury. The first test match will be played at the Gabba.
According to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald, Anderson suffered a calf injury and was ruled out of the first Ashes Test. It is the same problem that ruined his 2019 Ashes campaign. The England management have decided to rest Anderson for the first Test to ensure that he remains available for the second Test with the pink ball to be played in Adelaide, which they are looking forward to.
Fifth test match canceled, will be held at new location:
Cricket Australia (CA) on Monday confirmed that the fifth Ashes Test match will be shifted from the Perth Stadium due to the restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. CA and Western Australia Cricket (WA Cricket) have worked closely and constructively with the Government of Western Australia and Perth Stadium over several months, with the shared goal of prioritizing the health and well-being of the WA community in the best possible environment.

There is talk of changing the venue for the fifth Test match, as Western Australia recently confirmed that they will not compromise with the Corona protocol at any cost. In this situation, all players, broadcasting team and support staff will have to remain in quarantine for 14 days. That’s why the last test match will be held at some other place.
