Cricket Tasmania has yet to count its financial losses from the cancelled one-day international set for Friday.
But state chief executive Dominic Baker would like Bellerive Oval next season to get an extra Australian match should the New Zealand series be rescheduled after game one was forced to be played in an empty SCG.
"We'll push to make sure we get international cricket to this venue," Baker said.
"Given there's a chance of rescheduling New Zealand's games, it would be great to have them open to the public and to have them enjoyed.
"It wouldn't be a spectacle at all if it had gone ahead - a made for TV game only.
"I think the cancellation was wise and if we could get it rescheduled, getting fans in the stadium is what we would love to see."

Cricket Tasmania is not expecting to be compensated but for a restart of the three-game series not to be its only international new content.
Baker was still unsure how many tickets had been sold to assess the bottom line, but it was "enough to make it very disappointing for our fans at the gate" that the state's only match featuring Australia did not go ahead in Hobart.
"There will be a knock to revenues. It will be material, but not significant," he said.
Baker said moves of playing behind closed doors to abandoning it was not costly.
"The cancellation in a broad sense is more a Cricket Australia cost because it's their game. There were certainly some catering and other things that we would have invested in that," he said.
While the AFL is bracing for a significant loss that could affect Tasmania's eight annual matches involving Hawthorn and North Melbourne, Baker was almost relieved coronavirus happened when it did.
"We couldn't be happier that it has come at this time of the year for cricket," he said.
"We basically got through our season."
