Australia v India women’s cricket series postponed due to COVID19


The three-match ODI series between the #Australian and #Indian women’s teams – originally scheduled for #January 2021 – has been postponed until next season, with plans to expand the tour to include an additional three #Twenty20 internationals.

The postponement raises questions of double standards between the sexes given that the #Indian men’s cricket tour of #Australia has gone ahead as planned.

“#We had initially hoped to play #India this summer, however the impact of the global pandemic made it necessary to postpone until next season,” #Nick #Hockley, CA’s interim CEO said via a press release.

“#We are very hopeful of delivering an expanded schedule between the #Australian and #Indian women’s teams for next season, which would be an outstanding result for fans in both countries.

“#It will be wonderful to once again host the #Indian women’s team, who were centre stage for that unforgettable ICC T20 #World #Cup final at the MCG in #March, and to do so with an expanded schedule from what was originally planned.”

#In #March, #Australia defeated #India in the T20 women’s #World #Cup final in front of a crowd of 86,174.

#That broke the national record for women’s sport attendance – beating the 53,034 at the 2019 AFLW #Grand #Final between the #Adelaide #Crows and #Carlton at the #Adelaide #Oval.

#Dates and venues for the women’s ODI series will be confirmed “in due course.”
