Cricket Australia (CA) has revealed an adjusted fixture for the upcoming ODI tri-series between Australia, India and England and is also expected to push back this week’s round of Sheffield Shield games in the wake of the death of Phillip Hughes.
After having to reschedule Australia’s Test series against India, CA has been forced to alter its ODI fixturing to allow players to have ample recovery time in between matches.
The ODI tri-series was due to begin at the MCG on January 16, with a match between Australia and India, before Australia then took on England at the SCG on January 18.
Those matches have now traded places, with Australia now playing England on January 16 at the SCG, while the clash between Australia and India at the MCG will now take place on January 18.
CA chief executive James Sutherland thanked English and Indian counterparts for their understanding.
“In light of recent scheduling changes, we have attempted to minimise the impact on the Carlton Mid ODI Tri Series. We appreciate the patience of our fans as we continue to work through the impacts of these changes,” Sutherland said.
“At the same time, we look forward to an exciting Carlton Mid ODI Tri Series with England and India, which will be a fitting lead-in to the ICC Cricket World Cup commencing in February.
“We thank the BCCI and ECB for their support and understanding throughout this difficult time.”
