Cricket Tasmania CEO, Dominic Baker, said that whilst the situation was disappointing for all involved, the state association supported Cricket Australia’s position.

“Playing international cricket in our state remains a high priority for Cricket Tasmania and we will be working closely with Cricket Australia on international content opportunities for our Tasmanian cricket fans for both this and future seasons.

“We’re thrilled with the delivery of the first 24 WBBL matches for this season in Tasmania, and as we have said throughout Blundstone Arena is a world-class facility willing and ready to host any cricket content at short notice.

“We’re grateful to our partners and stakeholders for their understanding as local content for this season shifts."
