Victoria's WNCL Matches Postponed

Victoria’s WNCL matches against the ACT Meteors on January 9 and 11 at Manuka Oval have been postponed.

The decision to postpone the matches is based on player health and wellbeing.

Cricket Victoria and Cricket ACT, in consultation with Cricket Australia, determined that the risk of exposure to COVID-19 through interstate travel, and the subsequent impact on player availability, is too significant at present.

Several WNCL squads are currently managing positive cases or enforced isolation, creating challenges around preparation and player availability.

All teams are committed to rescheduling the postponed matches to a later date in the 2021-22 WNCL season.

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

“The safety and wellbeing of players, match officials, staff and fans remains our top priority,” he said.

“Cricket Australia will continue to work closely with States and Territories as we navigate the challenges presented by COVID-19.

“All States and Territories have indicated a strong desire to reschedule the postponed matches, which we will investigate in due course.”
