The Abode Hotels ACT Meteors season will resume on February 22 with Cricket Australia (CA) today confirming the remainder of the 2021-22 Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) season.

A full 29-match season will be completed under the revised schedule, with each team playing eight matches before the final.

The final will be played on Friday, March 25 and will be broadcast live on Foxtel.

The remaining 24 WNCL matches are scheduled to be played at venues across the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria, with Canberra selected to host six games between March 13-20.

The revised schedule changes have been made to minimise biosecurity risks by reducing travel across the country, and in consideration of current border controls and quarantine requirements in Western Australia.

CA believes the decision to consolidate the schedule creates the safest possible environment for the players, match officials and staff.

All remaining WNCL matches will be streamed live on Kayo and cricket.com.au.

Peter Roach, Cricket Australia’s Head of Cricket Operations and Scheduling, said:

“CA is delighted to confirm the remainder of the WNCL season and a complete 29-game schedule.

“The consolidated schedule attempts to minimise the time each team will spend away from home, but we acknowledge there are still significant sacrifices from players, staff and match officials.

“Cricket NSW and Cricket ACT will host a substantial number of neutral matches and we especially thank their staff, and all the other hosts, for their efforts to allow the season to be completed.

“We look forward to the WNCL getting underway safely and thank the State and Territory associations for their flexibility and cooperation.”
