Cricket Australia (CA) has announced that international cricket will be returning to the country with the New Zealand Women team’s touring Down Under for a T20I and ODI series this month.

“Only mobile tickets will be available, and when you buy a ticket, Cricket Australia will keep your details for COVID-19 contact-tracing purposes.”
The fans will be seated in the six zones which will be mentioned on their tickets.
