Cricket: Women's Big Bash League to be played in Sydney hub

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.
