International cricket to resume in New Zealand during the summer

New Zealand will be hosting international cricket for four teams during their home season. The teams that will be touring New Zealand will be West Indies, Pakistan, Australia, and Bangladesh. Moreover, the Australian women’s team tour of New Zealand is also in the early stages of planning. This tour will take place in February 2021 in the gap created by the postponed World Cup. New Zealand last played an ODI against Australia at SCG in mid-March.

Pakistan and West Indies will be playing against New Zealand in Tests and T20Is. On the other hand, Bangladesh’s tour includes ODIs and T20Is. Australia will be playing only T20Is against their Trans-Tasman rivals. The tests against Pakistan and West Indies will be part of the World Test Championship. The women’s team will probably play five ODIs and three T20Is against the Australian team. New Zealand women’s team will tour Australia in September.

New Zealand Cricket (NZC) is working with the government on biosecurity measures for the touring teams. They are looking at a model similar to the one used in England. Moreover, they have been working with government agencies in this regard. While New Zealand has been successful in dealing with COVID-19, the current situation has changed. Four fresh cases of community transmission appeared in Auckland on Tuesday.

David White, CEO of NZC, confirmed the tours while talking with the reporters. He said that West Indies and Pakistan had confirmed the tours while Australia and Bangladesh are in agreement as well. This will lead to 37 days of international cricket on New Zealand soil. He also confirmed that The White Ferns would tour Australia in September. The Australia Women’s team will tour New Zealand in February 2021.

This brings up exciting news for the cricket fans around the world as international cricket makes a return in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
