Adelaide Oval is set to become the beneficiary of South Australia’s ongoing COVID-19 numbers, with the oval set to host multiple international matches.

South Australia could be Australia’s home of both international and domestic cricket this summer, with Adelaide playing host to as many as three test matches as well as all six teams in the Sheffield Shield.

Doubts are lingering over whether or not Perth will be able to host any international cricket this summer, with Western Australia’s strict quarantine rules creating scheduling issues for Cricket Australia.

The planned match against Afghanistan is scheduled to be played at Perth Stadium on November 21-25.

Meanwhile, Melbourne’s Boxing Day test is in doubt following the release of Victoria’s roadmap out of its current COVID-19 restrictions.

Adelaide Oval is currently scheduled to host the second Test match between Australia and India on December 11-15.

South Australia’s Cricket Association has also volunteered to host all six Sheffield Shield teams for October’s opening rounds.


It is understood that SACA has pointed to the new Oval hotel to host teams during their mandatory quarantine periods.
