Women’s T20 World Cup: Australia-West Indies warm-up game cancelled due to waterlogged outfield
The opening warm-up game in between Australia and West Indies ahead of the Women’s T20 World Cup was on Friday cancelled after heavy showers at the Allan Border Field left the conditions unplayable.
“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,” stated Chris Tetley, ICC Head of Occasions.
“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.”
Remarkably heavy rain has actually left the outfield at the Allan Border Field damp even as the pitch stays covered.

The Women’s T20 World Cup will get in progress with the opening match in between Australia and India at Sydney on February 21.
