Former test captain says Perth should host ‘at least one test’ in upcoming Ashes series
Former Australian cricket test captain Kim Hughes says Perth should host at least one test in the upcoming Ashes series against England in Australia.
It comes as doubt had been cast over the series with a number of English players still undecided on whether they will make the trip down under, with some reportedly unwilling to adhere to the strict quarantine rules.
However, overnight English Captain Joe Root committed to coming to Australia, paving the way for the series to go ahead.
“Why wouldn’t you come to Perth and play two test matches … or at least one test match for heavens sake,” Hughes told Liam Bartlett on 6PR Mornings.
“They could come to Perth they could play a four day game against a state representative side … and then come to Perth.
“But to think you’re going to play two in Melbourne and have nobody there, and then play two in Sydney and have nobody there? Oh yeah, pretty intelligent.”
