The Australian cricket team has an incredibly busy summer schedule in 2016-17, with matches against South Africa, Pakistan, New Zealand and Sri Lanka immediately followed by a tour to India. Here are all the details of the Australian cricket fixtures.
The Australian cricket team has endured a difficult run of form in the second half of 2016, losing a Test series in Sri Lanka, being whitewashed in their ODI tour of South Africa, and then losing their Test series against the Proteas 2-1 on home soil.
However, the final match of that series has offered some optimism for Aussie cricket fans, with a host of debutants helping the side to a seven-wicket win.
There’s no slowing down in the Australian cricket team’s hectic summer schedule, with the three-match Chappell-Hadlee ODI series against New Zealand immediately followed by Pakistan’s three-Test, five-ODI tour.
That tour will feature the second day-night Test of the summer at the Gabba, starting on December 15.
Australia then travel to New Zealand, returning the favour with a three-ODI series across the Tasman, before Sri Lanka then visit for three Twenty20 matches.
That series, however, is set to feature a severely weakened Australian side, with the daunting four-Test tour of India starting the next day on February 23.
