Australia-West Indies warm-up match cancelled due to waterlogged outfield

Brisbane, Feb 14 (UNI) The ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 warm-up fixture between
Australia and the West Indies has been cancelled after heavy rain over the past few days
rendered the conditions at Allan Border Field unplayable.
Brisbane has seen exceptionally heavy rain over the past few weeks, with the cumulative
rainfall already exceeding the average annual levels of rain. Persistent storms over the past
week have resulted in a very wet outfield with the pitch remaining covered.
Chris Tetley, ICC Head of Events said, “Unfortunately we have had to cancel Saturday’s
warm-up match between Australia and West Indies because of persistent heavy rain which
has left the outfield currently in an unfit condition for play.”
“Whilst the curators have worked tirelessly, the volume of rain has left us with no option
but to cancel tomorrow’s match. We are hopeful that conditions will permit the matches
between Bangladesh and Thailand, and India and Pakistan to take place on Sunday,” he
said.
Arrangements have been made to refund the sellout crowd. Fans who purchased their
tickets online through the T20 World Cup ticketing site or call centre will have refunds
automatically processed to their credit cards used for purchase, while those who bought
them in person at an Official T20 World Cup 2020 Ticket Box Office or Ticketek Outlet
need to send a refund application form and tickets to the Ticketek Australia office.
