According to Sports News, Cricket Australia has received special permission to train players at the Adelaide Oval during the segregation, the AAP reported.
The team, which is currently in Manchester, UK, will return to Australia soon, but it is not known which city they will fly to.
Perth were the early pioneers, but Western Australia made it clear that the players would stay in a tight hotel lockdown for fifteen days.
South Australia has now confirmed that players and staff will be staying at the Oval Hotel, built east of the Adelaide Oval.
The hotel and ground will become a biosecurity bubble under a proposal from the South Australian government, the Adelaide Oval management and the South Australian Cricket Association.
“CA is committed to staging a safe and successful summer and today’s agreement with the authorities in South Australia is a positive step towards achieving this,” said CA interim chief executive Nick Hawkley.
“The health and safety of the South Australian community is our highest priority and the guiding principle of our plan.
“There’s a lot to look forward to this summer and a lot of work is going on behind the scenes to make sure it happens.”
This arrangement is likely to apply to other players, including the Indian team, who arrive in Australia next year.
The four-Test series between Australia and India is currently scheduled to start in Brisbane on December 3-7, but rivals are now expected to start the series at the Adelaide Oval in mid-December.
