Cricket chiefs announce Women's Ashes changes due to World Cup

Popular News

England and Australia have announced changes to the Women's Ashes schedule due to coronavirus quarantine rules ahead of the Women's World Cup.

The multi-format series will now begin a week earlier than originally planned, on January 20.

The series will start with three Twenty20 matches in Adelaide, followed by a one-off Test match in Canberra, which remains scheduled for January 27-30.

Canberra's Manuka Oval will also host the first one-day international on February 3, while the following two matches will be played at Melbourne's Junction Oval, on February 6 and 8.

The changes have been made to allow the two teams sufficient time to travel to New Zealand and complete a 10-day mandatory quarantine period ahead of the Women's World Cup, beginning in March.
