Australian Cricket Fixtures

Starc celebrates a wicketThe Australian cricket team are set for a limited-overs tour of India before the Ashes roll around in 2017-18.

The Champions Trophy, played in England during June, saw Australia have two wash-outs and a loss to England, meaning they failed to make the semi-final stage.

They then produced a 1-1 series draw in their Test series in Bangladesh, with the ODI and T20 tour of India next on the schedule.

The Ashes kick off the home summer, headlining a bumper summer of cricket in Australia. It begins in Brisbane on November 23, with a day-night Test to follow at the Adelaide Oval.

Perth will host the third Test at the WACA, with the new Perth Stadium losing the race against time to be ready for the match.

The series will finish with the traditional Boxing Day and New Years Test matches in Melbourne and Sydney respectively.

It will then be on to a five-match ODI series against England. That gets underway at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on January 14, with Perth to host the final match on January 28.

Adelaide once again plays host to an Australia Day match, while Brisbane and Sydney will be the venues for the other two games.

A tri-nation T20 series rounds out the home fixtures for Australia, with the series split between Australia and New Zealand, seeing no neutral matches being played.

South Africa have announced they will be hosting a four-test series against Australia in 2018, the first four-Test series between the two sides since South Africa returned to international cricket. The series gets underway on March 1.
