Cricket Australia has confirmed revisions to the Women’s National Cricket League schedule as a result of the current weather emergency being experienced in Sydney.

Three matches, due to be played in Sydney, will be relocated.

  • March 6: Tasmania v Western Australia. Moved from Pratten Park, Sydney to Kippax Oval, Canberra
  • March 9: Tasmania v Australian Capital Territory. Moved from Rosedale Oval, Sydney to EPC Solar Park, Canberra
  • March 10: Victoria v Queensland. To be moved from Rosedale Oval, Sydney to alternate Sydney venue, to be confirmed soon.

Peter Roach, Cricket Australia’s Head of Cricket Operations and Scheduling, said:

“Firstly, our thoughts are with everyone in New South Wales and Queensland affected by the current weather emergency.

“The unique circumstances of this once in a generation event have made it impossible, well in advance of some matches, for a pitch and outfield of a suitable level to be produced at the nominated venues in Sydney.

“While cricket is an outdoor sport and the impact of weather is part of the game, in this instance there is opportunity to relocate matches that, well in advance, we know cannot proceed.

“Additionally, the majority of teams have travelled to Sydney and Canberra for these matches and many of our WNCL squads have been starved of any match-play. Maximising the opportunity to play should be a focus while they are away from home. 

“We may lose other matches during this competition to the current weather event and any further inclement weather, but at this stage all other matches are on track to proceed as planned. 

“We thank Cricket ACT and Cricket NSW for working with us to relocate these matches.”
