Reports from the UK indicated that Joe Root has confirmed he will be captain of the side

The men’s Ashes is set to continue this summer, with England’s players reportedly agreeing to tour in a move that will green-light the A$200 million run.

England cricketers spoke again with Cricket Australia (CA) bosses on Tuesday evening to allay concerns about strict Covid-19 protocols. Players have until the end of this week to make a decision by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), with the team only touring if a sufficient number of frontliners agree to travel.

However, those fears have now seemingly allayed with those of the UK Daily Telegram reports that Captain Joe Root has led a group of players committed to the series.

According to the report, wicketkeeper Jos Buttler could be the only England player not to agree to a tour. He had previously expressed concerns about the tour and possible time away from family.
