“Nothing was harsher than the last Ashes series. But in my mind, I don’t class that as a real Ashes. Nothing about that series was high-level performance because of the COVID restrictions. The training facilities, the travel, not being able to socialize. I’ve written it off as a void series,” Broad mentioned in response to Daily Mail.
Responding to this Starc reminded Broad that they have been allowed to play even Golf on the tour even as the gamers’ households have been additionally allowed. “The funniest factor out of that was they known as it quarantine on the Gold Coast. I did seven of them. That was the simplest by a rustic mile. The Poms had the pool, the health club, they have been in a resort on the Gold Coast, they educated at Metricon (now Heritage Bank Stadium), weren’t confined to their rooms and had their households there.
“Was that really quarantine? They were still allowed to play golf on tour. Is that an excuse for 4-0? Dunno. It was a pretty good series to be a part of,” Starc mentioned whereas chatting with the Sydney Morning herald.
