South Australia will host a share of Women's National Cricket League (WNCL), Marsh Sheffield Shield and Marsh One-Day Cup matches across the summer, in addition to the Under 19 Male National Championships in December.
The SA Scorpions will have the opportunity to play six home matches this summer, while the West End Redbacks will split five Sheffield Shield games between Adelaide Oval and Karen Rolton Oval.
South Australia will additionally welcome three One-Day Cup matches, with three fixtures also broadcast on Foxtel.
For the first time, the WNCL will expand to a 43-game fixture, while the Marsh Sheffield Shield and Marsh One-Day Cup will revert to full 31 and 22-game schedules respectively in 2022-23.
- Two WNCL matches against each team, displaying cricket’s commitment to increased playing opportunities for women.
- Strong expected availability of Australian contracted players to represent their domestic teams in the WNCL.
- A full domestic fixture in the Marsh Sheffield Shield and Marsh One-Day Cup following two Covid-impacted seasons.
- An action-packed start to the domestic season with six Marsh One-Day Cup matches in nine days from September 23, all broadcast on Foxtel.
- In total, 13 Marsh One-Day Cup matches broadcast on Foxtel including the Final, while the Marsh Sheffield Shield Final will also be shown on Foxtel.
- Four underage National Championships to showcase the best young cricketers in the top age groups of Australian Cricket's Pathways system.
The complete domestic schedule has been created in consultation with State and Territory Associations and the Australian Cricketers’ Association and is a feature of an unprecedented Australian summer of cricket that includes more days of international cricket than ever before.
Peter Roach, Cricket Australia’s Head of Cricket Operations and Scheduling, said:
“We are delighted to deliver a domestic schedule today which sees a return to full competitions across both men’s competitions and an extended WNCL.
“A full WNCL season with two matches against each opponent is a logical step and provides greater opportunities for our emerging women’s cricketers to play alongside our world-leading Australian players.
“Maintaining the strength of our domestic competitions is a priority for Australian Cricket and it’s brilliant to see so much elite cricket being played this summer.
“We look forward to the beginning of our domestic season on September 23, and thank all our partners including Marsh, Foxtel and Kayo for their ongoing support of domestic cricket.”
