While we are disappointed that WA won’t host the Australia v Afghanistan men’s Test match this summer, we understand and support the decision to postpone it due to the complexities around scheduling international matches during the global COVID-19 pandemic.

We understand we need to remain agile in this current climate and this decision will not waiver our efforts to bring live cricket to Perth this summer as we continue to work closely with Cricket Australia and both the Australian and WA Government.

With world-class facilities and the opportunity for cricket fans to attend matches we maintain that WA is well-positioned to host cricket content, including a BBL hub.

I want to thank our Members, Commercial Partners, fans and the WA cricket community for their patience and continued support during these challenging times. We remain focussed on delivering an exciting and safe cricket season for everyone.
