ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr MLA said the ACT Government is working closely with Cricket Australia on a multi-year international cricket agreement for Manuka Oval from 2025-26. 

"These are positive and productive discussions that will continue through the year.

"While we continue these discussions, the ACT Government welcomes the return of international cricket to Manuka Oval for the upcoming summer. The women's Ashes clash will be an exciting match. 

"The shared goal between Cricket Australia, Cricket ACT and the ACT Government is to grow participation in the sport in Canberra.  A key element of this growth partnership is to have regular international women's and men's cricket at Manuka Oval.

"The schedule and content will, of course, vary from year to year reflecting the international touring program and the number of international teams touring Australia in any given summer."
