Wellington has replaced Bay Oval as the venue for the final Black Caps v Australia and White Ferns England T20 double-header on Sunday.
New Zealand Cricket has been forced to make the change because of logistical complications arising from the transfer of this Friday's second double-header from Auckland to Wellington.
The current alert level 2 protocols in Wellington mean all three double-headers – on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, will be played behind closed doors.
Tickets purchased for matches affected by alert Level restrictions will automatically receive full refunds to the card or bank account number from which they were paid, New Zealand Cricket said in a statement.
The Black Caps currently lead the serious 2-0 after victories in front of sell out crowds in Christchurch and Dunedin.
Meanwhile, the America's Cup start has been pushed back until at least March 10th.
Auckland's move to alert level three means the first weekend of racing on the 6th and 7th of March, has been delayed.
America's Cup Event Limited chair Tina Symmans says they've always wanted to hold racing under level one, but ACE will apply for an exemption to race under level three.
