Cricket Australia announce revised domestic schedule
Cricket Australia has confirmed a further five matches in a revised 2021-22 men’s domestic schedule.
Revisions to the schedule have been made due to state border restrictions, public health conditions and their related impacts. Cricket Australia and all State and Territory Associations will continue to prioritise the health and safety of the community, players, staff and match officials.
The confirmed matches are:
Marsh Sheffield Shield
Oct 7-10: Queensland v Tasmania, Karen Rolton Oval
Oct 15-18: South Australia v Queensland, Adelaide Oval
Oct 17-20: Western Australia v Tasmania, WACA Ground
Marsh One-Day Cup
Oct 13: South Australia v Queensland, Karen Rolton Oval
Oct 15: Western Australia v Tasmania, WACA Ground (D/N)
The Queensland versus Tasmania Marsh Sheffield Shield match has been moved to South Australia to allow for future matches to proceed. The Queensland side will leave for South Australia tomorrow to prepare for the upcoming fixtures.
All five matches will be live streamed on Kayo and cricket.com.au. Marsh One-Day Cup matches will also be shown on Foxtel.
Cricket Australia, Cricket NSW and Cricket Victoria are working closely with state and territory governments on the scheduling of matches for Victoria and New South Wales.
Peter Roach, Cricket Australia’s Head of Cricket Operations and Scheduling, said:
“It has been fantastic to see the summer of cricket get under way recently with a thrilling start to the CommBank International Series between Australia and India, as well as the beginning of the men’s domestic season in South Australia.
“We look forward to providing further updates regarding the Marsh Sheffield Shield, Marsh One-Day Cup and Women’s National Cricket League schedules as soon as possible.
“Our thanks go to Marsh, Foxtel and Kayo, as well as our State and Territory Associations for their support of domestic cricket.”
