More than 90 thousand spectators were present in this match played between these two countries. Fox told SEN Radio, “Definitely it would be great to have three consecutive Test matches at the MCG. The stadium will be packed every time. We have taken information about this.

Fox said that Cricket Australia should talk to the International Cricket Council (ICC) about this.

When you see many empty stadiums around the world, then I think a packed stadium and the atmosphere there will be better for the game.
