Women’s Ashes rescheduled owing to quarantine complications

Australia and England will kick-start the Women’s Ashes with the T20Is instead of Tests

Cricket Australia have confirmed that the schedule for the Women’s Ashes has been rejigged, brought forward by a week due to the quarantine requirements for the upcoming ODI World Cup in New Zealand.

The series was originally scheduled to kick-off on January 27 with the one-off Test in Canberra, but it has now been brought forward by a week and will begin with the T20 Internationals. 

The Women’s Ashes will now begin with the three-match T20I series in Adelaide, starting January 20, following which the one-off Test will be played from January 27 in Canberra. Canberra will also host the first ODI, that will be played on February 3, while the Junction Oval will be hosting the final two ODIs, scheduled for February 6 and February 8 respectively.

The changes have been made to allow both England and Australia to enter hotel quarantine in New Zealand ahead of the one-day World Cup. 

"We’re grateful to all parties for their flexibility in ensuring that both Australia and England can travel to New Zealand with sufficient time to complete their mandatory quarantine period," Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockley said.

"Regrettably, logistical considerations have meant that we have had to move two T20 games from North Sydney Oval, which has long been the home of the women’s game in Sydney, and it is also disappointing that the annual Governor-General’s XI match scheduled to be played at Drummoyne Oval is unable to proceed this season.

"We thank cricket fans in Sydney for their understanding and have no doubt that the three T20Is at Adelaide Oval will set the tone for a great series."

The Women’s World Cup will kick-off on March 4 in Mount Maunganui, where New Zealand will be hosting West Indies.
