Only Melbourne, Australia has been a surge in coronavirus cases recently. Apart from which, the country has recorded more than 9,000 cases overall.

"Yeah, we have confirmed that tour. In December we will be coming. We just hope the number of quarantine days get reduced a bit. Because, we don't want the players to go all that far and sit in hotel rooms for two weeks. It is very, very depressing and disappointing,” Ganguly told India Today TV. "And, as I said Australia and New Zealand have been in good position except Melbourne. So from that point of view we will be going there and hopefully the quarantine days will be less and we can get back to cricket,” he added.

The West Indies team spent 14 days in quarantine after they landed in England for the three-test tour which began on July 8. This marked the beginning of international cricket since the pandemic commenced.

"It is going to be a tough series. It is not going to be what it was two years back. It is going to be a strong Australia but our team is as good," said Ganguly. "We have the batting, we have the bowling. We just need to bat better. You know the best team overseas bat well. When we were so successful in England, in Australia, in Pakistan we were getting 400-500-600 in Test matches. I said that to Virat as well."

Gangulyt told Captain Virat Kohli, "Because you are Virat Kohli your standards are high. When you walk out to play, when you walk out with your team, I, watching on TV, don't expect you to just play well against Australia. I expect you to win."

"For his captaincy tenure this will be a milestone series - more than the World Cup,” said Ganguly to India Today TV.

Meanwhile he also said he does not want 2020 to "finish without the Indian Premiere League."
