A three-match one-day international series between the Australia and India women’s cricket teams has been postponed indefinitely and likely won’t be played until 2022.

There have been new COVID-19 outbreaks in Sydney which has resulted to some states imposing travel restrictions. And international passengers arriving into Australia are required to quarantine for 14 days.

The matches were due to take place on Jan. 22 in Canberra, Jan. 25 in Melbourne and Jan. 28 in Hobart.

Cricket Australia said the matches will be postponed until “next season,” which would likely be 2022, and that three Twenty20 matches would be added to the tour.

The development means India, runners-up in the last ODI and T20 World Cups, will be out of action for 10 months. The team’s last match was in the T20 World Cup final on March 8.
