Australia postpone the August ODI series against Zimbabwe

On Tuesday, Cricket Australia (CA) announced that Australia and Zimbabwe agreed to postpone three one-day internationals in August due to the difficulty putting on the series as the Covid-19 pandemic continues. On August 9, Zimbabwe had to play the first match at a venue that had yet to be decided in the far north of Australia with another game three days later and a final fixture on August 15 in Townsville. According to the statement of CA, the decision was mutually agreed and that they remained committed to playing the series matches on  “alternative dates”.

CA’s Nick Hockley told the media,  “While we are disappointed to postpone the series, CA and (Zimbabwe Cricket) agree that in the best interest of players, volunteers, match officials, as well as our fans, this is the most realistic and sensible decision.”

The last international match played by Australia was on March 13, when they beat New Zealand at the Sydney Cricket Ground behind closed doors just before the Covid-19 outbreak forced the shutdown of all sports.

Last week, England’s cricket director Ashley Giles said that Australia would agree to play a one-day series in Britain in September, as he was “quietly optimistic” on this matter.
