Australia’s next commitment though will be in the form of a tour to the United Arab Emirates where they will play Pakistan in two Tests and three T20 matches. This series starts on October 7 with the Test matches, while the third T20 will be played on October 29.

The summer will start with South Africa playing three ODIs and a T20, before India tour for three T20s, four Tests and three ODIs, with those matches running from November 21 to January 18.

Following that, the home summer of cricket will run even longer than usual, with Sri Lanka touring for two Tests. The second of these matches will see Manuka Oval in Canberra makes its debut as a Test venue.

All games will be broadcast by Fox Sports, however, Test matches will also be broadcast by the Seven network.

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