Queensland Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk is not concerned about speculation Brisbane could lose fourth test of cricket

The lockdown came amid rampant speculation that India would refuse to play the series finale at the Gabba as planned, dissatisfied with the restrictions imposed by the state government

Cricket Australia (CA) and Queensland Cricket continue to plan to hold the fourth Test, which begins Friday in Brisbane

“As I said yesterday and the day before, discussions are still taking place,” said Palaszczuk on Saturday

It remains unclear what amount could be possible for the fourth test, should it take place at the Gabba as planned, as 100 percent capacity was expected prior to recent COVID concerns

Queensland officials could theoretically follow Sydney orders to make masks mandatory at all times except when eating and drinking to justify a small amount

The capacity of the SCG has been reduced to 25 percent due to concerns about the risk of the virus spreading to the stocks
