New Zealand-Australia T20I series cancelled – NZC chief executive David White

The series was initially arranged on the basis of the NZ government's plan to relax restrictions between the two countries

The four-day series, which will take place at McLean Park in Napier on March 17, 18, and 20, was originally planned in response to the New Zealand government’s desire to loosen trans-Tasman border restrictions.

However, with those plans now significantly pushed back and no MIQ accommodation available for the Australian team when they arrive in New Zealand, NZC has no choice except to abandon the series.

However, the arrival of the omicron variety in New Zealand has delayed the reopening of the international border, and the series will not be held because the Australian men’s team does not have managed isolation places reserved.

“There was a lot of hope that the trans-Tasman border would be open for those who matched the necessary criteria at the time we arranged the visit,” New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said in a statement on Wednesday.
