Australian Cricket Fixtures

Following a successful summer which featured series wins at home to New Zealand, the West Indies and India, and a victorious Test tour of New Zealand, Australia took on the World T20 and ultimately came up short.

Following the World Cup they head to the West Indies for an ODI tri-series with South Africa, before a tour of Sri Lanka.

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 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.
