To loose the Boxing Day test to Adelaide would be some small compensation for years of arrogantly looking down their nose at the other states.
I will admit though, it was pretty funny to watch Andrews eat his words about “Why would you want to go to SA?” so quickly. It was only a couple weeks later that Victoria flared up while SA kept cruising along and has still mostly stayed that way.

So anyway, the Indian cricket team will probably arrive in October and will be in quarantine for two weeks, staying in this hotel. They will train at Adelaide oval but in small groups only. Western Australia rejected the idea, and Sydney is also chasing the Boxing Day test. We might be able to beat them to it given they can remain in a hub here.
Apparently the hotel has two wings, and one can be isolated from the other. I personally wouldn't want to be anywhere near Adelaide Oval or the hotel with the Indians in there, given they have 90,000 cases a day, have passed Brasil and on track to surpass America, and also given the fact that most of our new cases have been from Indians returning from holidays in India (besides the odd stray infected Victorian).

If it wasn't for this hotel and the ability to contain the entire team in that location, I'd say it was an extremely bad idea and the Western Australian hardline on it is the way to go. Our economy would be decimated worse then the state bank collapse if we had to impose stage 4 restrictions like Melbourne has been enduring.

The country as a whole is getting huge amounts of new cases, but I suspect that the cricketers will be fairly well isolated from the moment that they are selected for the touring team. It's not a good look (or cost) for the Indian Cricket Authorities to have half the team sidelined. Flying in replacements for an infected player has the additional problem of isolating them from the rest of their own team, too.

There is a 1 page spread in the the travel section of the Weekend Australian today promoting the hotel. The marketing campaign has well and truly begun.

BTW, the cricketers will not be staying in the hotel. Health SA didn't approve it and for obvious reasons - the players had free reign over the place and the hotel couldn't be locked down or even cordoned off efficiently so it wasn't even close to suitable. Not a knock on the hotel though, it was never designed to be an iso wing.
