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

Australian’s next assignment is the World Cup in England, which will kick-off against Afghanistan on June 1, before playing the West Indies, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, England, New Zealand and South Africa on their road to defending the 2015 victory.

After the World Cup comes to an end on July 14, there’ll be only a short break before the 2019 Ashes series kicks off on August 1 at Edgbaston. Australia will take on England in five Tests, before an away series to Bangladesh leads into the new summer of cricket.

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.

The Ashes Tour and World Cup will be available on the Nine Network for Australian matches, while other games played throughout the World Cup will be available on Fox Sports.

Australian fans wanting to watch other overseas tours will more than likely be able to do so via Fox Sports with either a valid Foxtel TV or Foxtel Now subscription.
