Sheffield Shield Marsh Cup 2021-22


Covid-19 outbreak forces Queensland out of the state while CA schedule four more matches including a day-night Shield fixture between WA and Tasmania in Perth

This week’s postponed Sheffield Shield clash between Queensland and Tasmania has been moved to Adelaide with the Bulls set to fly out of Queensland on Saturday due to growing concerns about border closures following a Covid-19 outbreak in Brisbane.

The fixture was originally to begin last Tuesday at Ian Healy Oval in Brisbane but the announcement of four new Covid-19 cases in Queensland forced the match to be postponed with Tasmania making the swift decision to fly home, much to the frustration of Queensland Cricket (QC) chief executive Terry Svenson.

Cricket Australia has instead now shifted the fixture to Adelaide and it will be played at Karen Rolton Oval starting on October 7. The Marsh Cup 50-over clash between the two sides that was due to be played on Sunday in Brisbane has been postponed and has yet to be rescheduled.

Two more Sheffield Shield fixtures have been added to the previously bare men’s domestic schedule with Queensland to remain in Adelaide to face South Australia in a Marsh Cup clash on October 13 at Karen Rolton Oval and a Sheffield Shield clash starting on October 15 at Adelaide Oval.
