FURTHER CHANGES: Due to coronavirus, we’ve had to implement further changes to our day to day operations. Unfortunately, this means that the remainder of the Marsh Sheffield Shield has now been cancelled and it is recommended that all cricket played within the community is ceased for the remainder of the 2019/20 season. Putting the health and safety of all participants, volunteers and the wider community is our number one priority and we hope to resume normal operations as soon as it’s safe to do so. We thank our cricket community for your support during this time. 🙏🏻 Head to cricketaustralia.com.au to read more in our Announcements section.
The final round of the Marsh Sheffield Shield has been cancelled, in a bid to reduce travel for our players. A decision on the final will be made in due course. This follows several announcements yesterday due to the impact of the coronavirus, including our home ODIs against New Zealand and our T20I tour of New Zealand being postponed due to new travel restrictions. Head to our website for everything you need to know.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have announced a number of changes for upcoming matches and tours. . Based on these changes, all fans who have purchased public tickets for the upcoming Gillette ODI Series (including today’s match at the SCG ) are eligible for a full refund and will be contacted directly via @ticketekaustralia .
