The upcoming Ashes series in Australia has been making headlines for some time now, with a number of England players currently echoing their reservations against the strict Covid-1 prot protocol which is currently down under. The five-match Test series will run from December 8 to January 1.
Former England captain Kevin Pietersen took to Twitter on Monday to comment on the situation. Pietersen said it needs to be a part of the problems that players have to face because of the constant bio-bubbles.
Petersen tweeted, “I have no way to go to the Ashes this winter. Zero chance!
I have no way to go to the Ashes this winter.
If not, the ridiculous separation rule is repealed and my family can travel with zero restrictions.
Players end up with bubbles now!

During a recent diplomatic visit to Washington DC, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson raised the issue of travel bans on the families of England cricketers with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
Earlier, England pacer Stuart Broad confirmed that he would travel to Australia for the upcoming Ashes if he was fit. Negotiations are underway between the ECB and the CA and the two boards are trying to find a compromise on segregation and living arrangements during the two-month trip.
Australia are now the holders of the Ashes ‘Urn’ after a 2-2 draw in the previous series in England.
