BBL Eliminator shifted to Canberra: Cricket Australia confirms new venue for Scorcher’s knock-out match after sudden lockdown in Perth- A sudden lockdown of the city of Perth due to a Coronavirus case in Western-Australia’s hotel quarantine has led to the shift of the Perth Scorchers’ BBL Challenger match to Canberra. The match will be held on Thursday at the Manuka Oval.

The Scorchers lost to the Sixers in the Qualifier at the Manuka in Canberra. They were lucky that when the lockdown was announced they were still in Canberra, with the flight scheduled for later as compared to when the lockdown was announced in Perth.

An emergency contingency meet of BBL Officials decided on the Challenger match to be held in Canberra. The final is to be played at the SCG.
