The International Cricket Council (ICC) has approved the newly-built Perth Stadium to host all international formats of cricket.

The 50,000-capacity arena is set to become the main venue for cricket in Western Australia.

Cricket Australia CEO, James Sutherland, said: “The stadium is a magnificent asset for the state of WA and its sports fan. We very much look forward to bringing this big Australia-England one-day match to Perth to the Stadium on 28 January.

ICC match referee, Richie Richardson, added: “The new Perth Stadium is a wonderful, refreshing, world class stadium, and I have no hesitation in recommending that the venue is approved for staging all three formats of international cricket.”

Meanwhile, the WACA – which has hosted major matches since the 1890s – will be turned into a boutique ground.
