Canberra has fallen off the men's international cricket calendar this summer after a trans-Tasman series fell victim to the coronavirus pandemic.
Australia's three-game one-day international series against New Zealand has been postponed until the 2021-22 season, with a one-off Test against Afghanistan pushed back with it.
Manuka Oval was slated to host a 50-over clash between Australia and New Zealand on January 29, with the future of the contest now up in the air.
Cricket Australia says its is confident it will find a suitable window for each postponed match to be played by 2023 at the latest as officials prepare for a coronavirus domino effect to wreak havoc on the season ahead.
It is a cruel blow for Canberra after the capital lost its marquee event for the summer - a Twenty20 World Cup warm-up match between international powerhouses Australia and India.
However the Australian men's team will still host India for four Tests, three one-day internationals and three Twenty20 matches this summer, but the venues and dates are yet to be locked in.
Cricket Australia interim chief executive Nick Hockley says the delayed matches against New Zealand and Afghanistan will take place once restrictions have been eased.
"We all worked incredibly hard to make the series happen this summer, but the challenges around international travel and quarantine restrictions ultimately convinced all parties that the series would need to be played at a later date," Hockley said.
"CA looks forward to welcoming the Indian men's team for a full schedule of matches this summer in what promises to be an incredible contest."
Canberra still holds a place on the international schedule, with plans afoot for the national women's team to meet New Zealand in a one-day game at Manuka Oval on January 22.
Yet the evolving nature of the cricket schedule being worked on by officials in a remarkable time for sport suggests even that is not set in stone.
