Australia announces resumption of cricket series; Zimbabwe, New Zealand, India, West Indies scheduled to tour


Australia has decided to host international cricket starting with a three-match One Day International (ODI) series against Zimbabwe on August 9, 2020, at a venue which is yet to be finalised with India, too, going Down Under later in the year. Announcing the schedule of international cricket for the 2020-21 season following a sudden break due to the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic earlier in the year, Cricket Australia CEO Kevin Roberts said that the dates of the matches have been announced following his country’s success in tackling the deadly viral infection

“While acknowledging the difficulty in navigating a global pandemic, we are nonetheless encouraged by the progress Australia is making in combatting the coronavirus and the positive impact that is having on our ability to host an exciting summer of cricket in 2020-21,” said Roberts.

After the three ODIs against Zimbabwe, Australia are scheduled to face trans-Tasmanian rivals New Zealand. The women’s teams of the two countries will faceoff in three T20 Internationals and the same number of ODIs. The other teams slated to tour Down Under are the West Indies, India and Afghanistan.

The highlights of the schedule announced will certainly be the battle between the men’s teams of India and Australia. The sides have been involved in several high-voltage and close contests over the last several years and the matches later in 2020 and early 2021 give then another chance to renew their rivalry after a forced break.
