Australia’s upcoming tour fixtures can be found below – for both the men’s side and the Southern Stars women’s team.
Australia’s men have just wrapped up a dismal tour of the West Indies, while the women are waiting for a blockbuster summer of cricket to arrive.
Both the men’s and women’s schedules for the 2021-22 summer are headlined by Ashes series: for the men a five-Test encounter, while the Southern Stars will contest their trophy over a seven-match, mixed-format tour.
The men will then welcome New Zealand and Sri Lanka to Australia for a series of limited-overs matches. The women are slated to host India, although exact fixtures for that tour are yet to be announced.
Fox Cricket show all Australian matches at home and overseas – including exclusive coverage of men’s T20Is and ODIs – and their coverage can be streamed online via Kayo Sports. Channel Seven will also broadcast men’s Tests, as well as all women’s internationals.

The Australian women recently completed a tour of New Zealand, where they extended their world-record ODI winning streak to 24 matches. Their next locked in fixtures are a six-match series against India at the start of the summer before the Women’s Ashes in January and February 2022. After that, the 2022 ODI World Cup will take place in New Zealand.
