Australian Cricket Fixtures

The Australian Cricket team opens their season with a Tri-series in Zimbabwe against the host nation and South Africa in late August.

The squad will then travel to the Middle East to play a tour series against Pakistan consisting of one T20, three ODIs, two Test matches and a four-day tour match against Pakistan A.

The 2014/15 Australian Test summer will consist of a four-Test series against India, with matches to be held in Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.

Perth will miss out on hosting a Test for the 2014/15 season due to the scheduling requirements of the ICC Cricket World Cup beginning in February 2015, for which Australia is a co-host with New Zealand.

Australia will host South Africa for a limited overs series in November 2014, as well as India and England in a limited overs tri-series in January 2015, in the lead up to the World Cup commencing on February 14, 2015.

Tributes flow for Australia’s youngest Test captain, Ian Craig

by , 29 Nov 2014

It wasn’t Ian Craig’s prodigious talent. Nor was it the maturity which belied his tender years. The trait Australian cricket great Bobby Simpson most admired was Craig’s ability to lead.

The death of Phillip Hughes marks the darkest day in Australian sport in my lifetime, and in the lifetimes of people many years my senior. The moniker once infamously assigned to a day devoted to the discovery of drug cheating and match fixing, makes these issues appear wholly trivial. Here was a sportsperson who presented […]
