New Zealand Cricket Chief Executive David White is convinced that coronavirus risk in Northland will not have any effect on the upcoming Australia men’s & women’s series.
New Zealand will host Australia in five T20Is from February 22 in Christchurch while New Zealand women’s cricket team will be hosting England for three ODIs & three starting from February 23 to March 7.
“We’re very positive that the tours to New Zealand will proceed with the Australian teams. We’ve been guided by the New Zealand Government agencies all summer, they’ve been terrific and very supportive, and we will continue to be guided by them,” stuff.co.nz quoted White as saying.
“What’s great is the England women land in New Zealand today. So they will be here for a tour, which our White Ferns are really looking forward to, and great preparation for the World Cup next year,” he added.
Just a week after England return back the Australia Women’s Team will arrive in New Zealand & undergo isolation ahead of three T20Is at Hamilton’s Seddon Park & three ODIs at Mt. Maunganui’s Bay Oval. Meanwhile ECB on Monday confirmed that England will start their home International Summer Series with a two match test series against New Zealand starting from June 2. England will host New Zraland for two test matches at Lord’s (June 2-6) and Edgbaston (June 10-14).
