Australian Cricket Fixtures

Starc celebrates a wicketFollowing a mixed tour of Sri Lanka that saw them whitewashed 3-0 in the Test series, then bounce back with One-day and T20 series wins, Australia will have little time to rest as they approach the Aussie summer.

They then head to South Africa for a five-match ODI series before heading back home for back-to-back Test series against the Proteas and Pakistan.

A series of three ODI matches against New Zealand has been announced in between the Test series with Pakistan hanging around for a five-match One-Day series at the end of the summer, before Sri Lanka tour for three T20 matches.

The Test series have also received a major shake-up with the WACA Ground in Perth to host the first Test Match against South Africa – the Test at the Gabba in Brisbane – traditionally the season opener has been moved to December.

This allows it to host a Day-Night match against Pakistan, with South Africa yet to confirm they will play in a Day-night Test at the Adelaide Oval.
