In the latest development from the world of cricket, Cricket Australia (CA) and England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have announced that the upcoming Women’s Ashes has been preponed. The decision has been taken by both boards in order to ensure that the players of the two teams have enough time to travel to New Zealand and complete a 10-day mandatory quarantine period before the start of the much-awaited ICC Women’s World Cup in March.

“The multi-format Women’s Ashes series will now begin a week earlier than originally planned on Thursday 20 January. The series will start with three IT20s in Adelaide, followed by the Test match at Manuka Oval in Canberra, which remains on January 27-30. Manuka Oval will also host the first ODI on February 3, while the following two matches will be played at Melbourne’s Junction Oval on February 6 and 8,” an official statement read.
