Cricket Australia's webpage informs that tickets to the 4th Test from 15 Jan '21 at The Gabba will be on sale from Wed. 30 Dec '20.  Previously Gold tickets cost approx $80 per day.  BankTeller will only attend Saturday's play at the Test Match - Day 2, 'cause watching on TV, or listening to Alan McGilvray and Lindsay Hassett, enables him to save his pennies for beer.  As with previous visits to Adelaide, Brisbane and Canberra, BankTeller will book the cricket admission tickets that you request of him.  But each attendee will book his own accommodation at Chino Hotel, or sleep in the park.
