The Australian women’s team will resume their activities in late March on a New Zealand tour that includes three T20Is and three ODIs.

The T20I series will be held in Hamilton on March 28th, 30th and April 1st, followed by ODI on Mount Maunganui on April 4th, 7th and 10th.

The first ODI is an opportunity for Meg Lanning’s team to break the record of consecutive victories in a format comparable to the 21 marks set by the Ricky Ponting team in 2003 when both teams met in Brisbane last year.

At that time, Australia won the T20 I Series 2-1 and ODI 3-0.

This tour, along with our last visit to England, will help fill the gap created by the postponement of the ODI World Cup until next year. There was talk of three teams participating in the Triangle series, but there are two separate tours.

“We are very grateful to the New Zealand government for supporting and enabling these women’s tours and creating an environment in which women can go,” said David White, CEO of NZC.

“And at the ICC Women’s World Cup in New Zealand next summer, it’s especially important for teams to be able to play, compete and develop games ahead of such important tournaments.”

Australia was scheduled to host India in mid-January, but the series has been postponed to next season.

The New Zealand team will receive two weeks of controlled quarantine upon arrival.
