India Women vs Australia Women multi-format series will begin with the ODI series announced by Cricket Australia on Monday. Queensland will host the multi-format series as the board announced the change in the series schedule due to the challenges posed in the host nation due to COVID-19.
India Women will lock horns with Australian women in three ODIs starting from 21st September in Mackay followed by a day & night test & three T20Is to be played at Metricon Stadium on the Gold coast. Both the teams will undergo a two-week quarantine period in Brisbane on Monday before starting with the training for the series.
Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockley said, “We’ve been monitoring the situation across the country and it is clear that the current COVID challenges prevent the original schedule from proceeding as initially planned. We are incredibly grateful to the Queensland Government for agreeing to quarantine the Australian and Indian players and enabling this important series to be played in Queensland. We are also delighted to be bringing our World Champion women’s team to Mackay and regional Queensland.”
“Having had to postpone the series last summer due to the pandemic, we are looking forward to hosting an Indian team which boasts some of the best players in the world in this historic series featuring the first-ever day-night Test match between the two sides. We thank everyone involved for their support and cooperation to stage this series safely and look forward to our World Champion women’s team launching this massive summer of cricket against a world-class Indian team,” he added.
