Cricket Australia (CA) has mandated a two-weeks quarantine for the Australia and NZ women cricketers ahead of the limited-overs series in September.
Australia and New Zealand women are scheduled to play in the upcoming white-ball series at the Allan Border Field, Brisbane. As per the protocols, both the teams will have to undergo COVID-19 tests along with 14-days of quarantine before the series.
“There is so much to look forward to this summer and everyone across Australian Cricket has been working tirelessly to deliver a full and compelling summer of cricket,” CA interim CEO Nick Hockley said.
“Fans in Queensland continually show how passionate they are about the women’s game with numerous sell-out crowds at Allan Border Field in recent years, including during the 2017 Women’s Ashes and last season’s Women’s Big Bash League Final,” he added.
The series will have three T20Is and as many ODI matches. The first T20I will take place on September 26, followed by the next two matches on 27th & 30th September. The ODI series will begin from October 3, with the next two matches on 5th & 7th.
“Australian players from Victoria and New South Wales are expected to arrive in Brisbane on September 6 and will be followed by the New Zealand squad on September 9, subject to Australian Border Force travel authorisation,” the CA said in a statement.
