After several months of being COVID-19 free, New Zealand have confirmed its first positive case in the country recently. Amid this new COVID-19 case, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) have announced that they will go ahead with hosting Australia for the upcoming 5-match T20I series in February.

While the Men’s team will play 5 T20Is against Australia on February 22 in Christchurch, the women’s team will host England for three ODIs and as many T20Is, from February 23 before playing Australia.

"We're very positive that the tours to New Zealand will proceed with the Australian teams," New Zealand Cricket Chief Executive David White told New Zealand's Stuff media, according to Reuters.

"We've been guided by the New Zealand government agencies all summer, they've been terrific and very supportive, and we will continue to be guided by them."

Further on, White added that the England women's team will arrive in New Zealand on Tuesday, January 26.

As confirmed by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), on Monday, Kane Williamson’s BlackCaps are set to tour England for a two-match Test series in June. David White is confident the series will go ahead despite the COVID-19 situation in the UK.

"We've been working with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for the last 12 months, just working together on the different bio bubbles and things," White added.

"They're very advanced, very sophisticated in their approach, and we're very confident that it will be all in order for our players.
