Cricket Australia’s newly-released 2023-24 fixture confirms two matches will be held at Hobart’s Blundstone Arena.
The Australian Women will stage a re-match of the 2023 ICC T20 World Cup Final when they take on South Africa in a T20 International match on Tuesday 30 January, before the Australian Men take on the big-hitting West Indies on in another T20 encounter on Friday 9 February.
It will be the first time both Australian teams have played fixtures in Tasmania since the 2015-16 season.
Cricket Tasmania Chairman, David Boon, said the announcement was great news for Cricket Tasmania Members and Tasmanian cricket fans alike.
“It will be fantastic to welcome both the national Men’s and Women’s cricket teams to Tasmania this summer,” Boon said.
“Both teams have won World Cups in the T20 format in the past 18 months, so it’s fantastic that Tasmanian sports fans have the opportunity to watch these world-class teams in action live.
“As an organisation, we continue to work with Cricket Australia to ensure we have premium international content here each summer, so the fact that we have both of Australia’s national teams playing here for the first time in eight years is a really positive step forward.”
