SACA CEO Keith Bradshaw said:
“While it is of course disappointing that the BBL|10 schedule has been affected by this global pandemic, we are always prepared to assist in any way possible, and we know we can put on a wonderful, family-friendly experience for all relocated fixtures.
“Our fans support the Strikers whenever and wherever we play, and we look forward to giving our Members and supporters additional chances to witness top quality cricket at our stunning home venue.”
Alistair Dobson, Cricket Australia’s Head of Big Bash Leagues, said:
“The decision to move the remaining five matches from Sydney, while unfortunate, was necessary to ensure the completion of the season in light of the ongoing public health situation and related state border closures.
“We’d also like to take the opportunity again to recognise the players, staff and match officials who have shown incredible resilience and flexibility to adapt to the ever-changing landscape and successfully implemented bio secure hubs in each market, which have allowed us to keep the BBL moving.”
