Australia's limited-overs tour of England to begin on 4 September, says report

Australia's "bio-secure" tour of England comprising three T20s and as many ODIs will begin on 4 September, according to a report.

Both Southampton and Manchester have hotels attached to the venues to house two sides, match officials and broadcasters.

These two grounds are currently playing host to the England-West Indies series, which has marked resumption of international cricket, and will also be the venues for the subsequent series against Pakistan.

The Australian selectors named a 26-man preliminary list of players last week, from which the final squad for the tour will be picked.

Cricket Australia's chief of national teams Ben Oliver had made it clear that the tour will be decided based on the restrictions the Australian players would face in UK and after their return back home.

"Obviously the health and safety of players and staff and public health component is critical. The quarantine arrangements aren't in place, they're not confirmed.

"They obviously exist in terms of general international travel at the moment so that's something we're working through but it is a consideration," Oliver had said.
