Australia vs New Zealand ODI series and Australia’s return tour postponed – Coronavirus threat

T20I series has been postponed as a result of the world outbreak of coronavirus.

The remaining two ODIs of Australia vs New Zealand series and Australia tour to New Zealand for a 3-match.

The choice was taken after the New Zealand authorities tightened its grip to regulate the outbreak of coronavirus.

The Kane Williamson-led New Zealand squad are actually slated to go away Australia on Saturday night. The Black Caps have determined to implement a compulsory 14-day self-isolation interval for these coming into the nation from Australia

“…the New Zealand government tightened its border restrictions and included Australia on the list of countries from which those entering New Zealand would be subjected to a mandatory 14-day self-isolation period,” stated New Zealand Cricket in a press release.

“A consequence of this is that we need to get our team back to New Zealand before the restriction is imposed, meaning it will not be able to participate in the two remaining Chappell-Hadlee fixtures.”

New Zealand pacer Lockie Ferguson had already been saved in isolation and underneath commentary for 24 hours after he complained of a sore throat after the primary ODI at Sydney on Friday, which Australia received by 71 runs.

The following two ODIs scheduled for Sunday in Sydney and Hobart on Friday (Mar 20) have been known as off.

This month’s three-match T20I series between Australia and the Kiwis in New Zealand beginning March 24 in Dunedin has additionally been postponed.

Cricket Australia on its half stated: “Cricket Australia and New Zealand Cricket will work together to identify a future opportunity to play both series.”

New Zealand Cricket hopes the 2 series might be replayed at a later date.

The information comes lower than 24 hours after each side performed behind closed doorways on the SCG on Friday as a result of coronavirus outbreak.
