BCCI vs CA: Australia to Tour India for the ODI series in Mid-January 2020
Following the disagreement, the world cricket governing body’s powerful board Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Cricket Australia (CA) have had resolved the conflict as the latter has accepted to send their team to play limited-overs series on the Indian soil.
It’s pertinent to mention that CA has agreed upon on playing One-day International series (ODI) in 2020. Furthermore, Australia will play away series early next year.
On Tuesday (May 7) both boards have reached to the point following their differences.
Earlier, CA has not allowed its three top-class women cricketers Meg Lanning, Alyssa Healy and Ellyse Perry – to feature in the Women’s Twenty20 Challenge in India.
It’s been confirmed when CA has released its detailed summer cricket schedule earlier this week.
The press release from CA has stated that Australia will tour India for the three-match ODI series. To be precise, the series will commence from mid-January, next year.
CA rescheduling set ODI series in India:
“Cricket Australia will honour its commitment to tour India for three ODIs in mid-January, which had caused a reshuffle of the home international schedule and pushed back the Chappell-Hadlee series,” the statement from CA has confirmed.
Thus, Australia has pushed the ODI series of the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy against New Zealand – to March 2020. The decision came following the reshuffling of the schedule.
However, the three-match Test series will get underway from December 2019.
On confirmation of the development, Head of Cricket Operations Peter Roach reiterated they’ve always aimed to work according to the binding of the international schedule. He added, their preference is in January for the ODI series.
“CA took the position that while January was our preference for these ODI matches. There are times we need to honour our commitments to work in the greater context of international cricket scheduling,” Roach told CA.
Concurrently, World Cup-bound Australian team led by Aaron Finch is preparing for the ICC World Cup 2019. The reigning champions have faced a major jolt on Wednesday as their young pacer Jhye Richardson got ruled out. Kane Richardson has replaced him.
On the other side, in a bid to prepare for the ODI showpiece, Australia is currently facing New Zealand XI. The three-match warm-up series is taking place at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane.
Australia will start their World Cup campaign against Afghanistan on June 1st at the Bristol County Ground.
