New Zealand postpones ODI series with Australia due to border restrictions over coronavirus

Australia's three-match ODI series against New Zealand began behind closed doors. Now it's been postponed, along with a return series, after a tightening of border restrictions by the New Zealand government.

"This new border restriction is to come into effect tomorrow at midnight (10pm Sydney time)," New Zealand Cricket said in the statement."A consequence of this is that we need to get our team back to New Zealand before the restriction is imposed, meaning it will not be able to participate in the two remaining Chappell-Hadlee fixtures.

"Arrangements are at this moment being made to fly the bulk of the squad home this evening.Breaking down the latest news and research to understand how the world is living through an epidemic, this is the ABC's Coronacast."This development also means the three-match T20I series scheduled for New Zealand cannot proceed as the mandatory self-isolation period would also apply to the Australian squad as soon as it crossed the border into New Zealand.
