The Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) match between the NSW Breakers and ACT Meteors, originally scheduled for January 14 at North Sydney Oval, but brought forward last week to Sunday, January 9 at Manuka Oval, has been postponed.

Several COVID-19 cases within the ACT Meteors squad has significantly impacted player availability.

Cricket ACT, with the support of Cricket NSW and Cricket Australia, made the decision to postpone the match based on player health and wellbeing.

Both teams are committed to rescheduling the match to a later date in the 2021-22 WNCL season.

Peter Roach, Cricket Australia’s Head of Cricket Operations and Scheduling, said:

“The safety and wellbeing of players, match officials, staff and fans remains our top priority,” he said.

“Cricket Australia will continue to work closely with States and Territories as we navigate the challenges presented by COVID-19."

The Breakers currently sit on top of the WNCL ladder with three wins from as many matches, including a 207 run victory over the Meteors last week.
