Blackcaps tour to Australia cancelled!

CRICDOT DESK : The stadium is about to be bottled up again due to the outbreak of new variant of Corona Omicron. New Zealand was scheduled to tour Australia in late January. But the scheduled series has been postponed due to strict quarantine policy and border restrictions. Why did Williamson’s team have to stay in isolation for at least 10 days after returning to their home country on tour?

Organizer Cricket Australia (CA) chief executive Nick Hawkley said he was “saddened” that the series against New Zealand was not taking place on time. We are of course in discussions with the New Zealand Cricket Board to arrange the series later. We thank New Zealand Cricket. Because they have tried their best to play this series. But due to quarantine complications, it is not possible for them at the moment. The series was supposed to end on February 9. New Zealand cricketers had to go through quarantine after returning from Australia tour. They have decided not to play the series at this time to avoid this problem.

Three ODIs and one T20I match were postponed in Australia in early 2020, when the Corona infection was spreading. Although it was supposed to be organized last year, it was not possible due to corona situation. New Zealand was scheduled to play these four matches in Australia from January 24 to February 9. Three ODIs were scheduled in Perth, Hobart and Sydney. The T20 match is in Canberra.
