Cricket Australia has called off Bushfire Cricket Bash fund-raising match due to the heavy rain forecasts for Saturday in Sydney. The match was scheduled to take place between two teams led by Ricky Ponting and Shane Warne at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Cricket Australia has made this decision considering the fate of the Big Bash Final which is also scheduled on the same date and venue. Therefore, CA has given preference to the BBL final in the double-header race. However, there is every possibility that BBL final will be washed out and in that case, the Sydney Sixers will be given the title.
There has been no decision from Cricket Australia about the charity game until now. The authorities said that the board will disclose its decision on Thursday and there is a chance that the match might be shifted to Melbourne.
