SYDNEY (Reuters) - The sixth season of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) will start a week later than planned but be played in its entirety in a Sydney hub, Cricket Australia (CA) said on Friday.
Travel restrictions forced by the COVID-19 pandemic have forced the relocation of the 59-match domestic Twenty20 tournament, which will start on Sunday Oct. 25.
“The move demonstrates the commitment across Australian cricket to host the full summer of cricket,” CA said in a statement.
Full details of the venues and fixtures for the eight teams will be released at a later date, the statement added.
