Australian Cricket Fixtures

Australia’s fixtures for the 2019-20 home summer of cricket have all been announced and can be found below.

The Cricket World Cup, which finished in a semi-final loss to England for Australia, kicked off a long winter of cricket in the nation.

The next assignment after a short break was the 2019 Ashes series, which saw Australia retain the urn after a 2-2 series draw.

An away series to Bangladesh will supposedly lead into the new summer, with three T20 matches set to be played. No fixtures have been announced for these matches.

The home summer starts with three T20 matches against both Sri Lanka and Pakistan, before Australia take on Pakistan in two Tests, and New Zealand in three.

Australia will then be forced to tour India, Bangladesh and South Africa during the second half of January, February and March, before returning to complete the home summer against New Zealand with three ODI matches.

All games played at home will be broadcast by Fox Sports, however, Test matches will also be broadcast by the Seven Network.

Australian fans wanting to watch other overseas tours will more than likely be able to do so via Kayo Sports.

Following the Ashes, Australia will make a quick pit-stop in Bangladesh for three T20 matches. The fixtures for these are yet to be confirmed, although should be played in October, 2019.
