The first ever standalone Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) semi-finals will be played at Drummoyne Oval in Sydney, scheduled on January 19.

Sydney Thunder are the ladder toppers and only second-ranked Sydney Sixers can displace them, this ensures that the hosting rights of semi-final doubleheader has been given to Sydney, Cricket Australia reported on Thursday.

The highest-ranked qualifier of the tournament will then earn the right to host the final on January 26, which means even if the teams who finish third and fourth win their semi-final, the decider will be played at the home of the third-ranked team.

International commitments have hit this season as players from India, England and New Zealand have to return home before the end of the tournament. As an outcome, the next season of WBBL will move to a separate window from October to December and before the start of Big Bash League. (ANI)
