Cricket Australia, the ECB, and the Australian authorities have been negotiating travel conditions for months. In a country where international visitors must be isolated in quarantine hotels. For 14 days, regardless of their COVID19 vaccination status.

“There’s no player that does not want to be part of the Ashes,” Woakes told the BBC.

“Behind the scenes, there are still things being ironed out between all sorts of levels. I think the players are relatively relaxed and guys are desperate to go.

“But we want to be under the best sort of conditions possible. So we can still live our lives outside of cricket.”

England captain Joe Root previously expressed doubts about the tour due to “bladder fatigue“, while Jos Buttler said he could skip the series.

“Until you have been in that situation and done it over and over again, the novelty wears off,” Woakes said. “Some people get it, some people don’t, and that is fine — everyone is entitled to their view.

“But until you have been in it and experienced it over again, it is hard to have a say on it.”
