The upcoming Ashes series in Australia has been in the news for some time now, with several England players echoing their reservations against the strict Covid-19 protocols currently in place in Down Under. The five-game test run is expected to start from December 8 and run through January 18.

Former England captain Kevin Pietersen took to Twitter on Monday to give his opinion on the situation. Pietersen spoke about the issues players face due to the continuous bio-bubbles they have to be a part of.

“There is NO WAY I am going to The Ashes this winter. ZERO luck! Unless the ridiculous quarantine rules are crushed and my family can travel without any restrictions. Players are now done with the bubbles! DONE, ”Pietersen tweeted.

Earlier, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson raised the issue of a travel ban for families of English cricketers with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison during a diplomatic visit to Washington DC.
