It is worth mentioning that the match will be played in a blockbuster triple header on February 8 when Australia Women are scheduled to host India Women in a T20I in addition to the final of the ongoing ninth season of the Big Bash League.

Cricket Australia confirmed on Sunday, an all-star T20 match will be played as a curtain-raiser to the Big Bash League final on February 8, with Shane Warne and Ricky Ponting to skipper the two teams.

Roberts said: "I'm delighted to confirm the Bushfire Cricket Bash will be Cricket Australia's major fundraising initiative to support Australians impacted by the recent unprecedented bushfire emergency".
