Australia’s upcoming tour fixtures can be found below – for both the men’s side and the women’s team.
Australia completed a strong home summer with a 2-0 series win over South Africa despite the final Test being drawn, then headed to India for a 2-1 Test series loss and 2-1 ODI series win.
The team’s high water mark came with victory over India in the World Test Championship final at The Oval in London.
Australia then retained the Ashes after the fourth Test against England was drawn, having held an unassailable 2-1 lead in the series after winning the first Test at Edgbaston by two wickets and the second at Lord’s by 43 runs, before losing the third Test at Headingley by three wickets. However, they lost the fifth Test at The Oval by 49 runs to see the series squared 2-2, and fail to achieve their other objective of winning an Ashes series in England for the first time since 2001.
The team prepared for the ODI World Cup with mixed results, sweeping an away T20I series 3-0 against South Africa before losing the subsequent ODI series 2-3 – despite leading 2-0. Their poor form continued with a 2-1 ODI series loss to India in India, losing the first two matches before winning the dead-rubber final match.
However, they secured a sixth World Cup crown in spectacular fashion, winning their final nine games of the tournament after a 0-2 start and defeating South Africa (three wickets) and India (six wickets) in the semi-final and final respectively.
Cricket Australia have also announced the schedule for the 2023/24 summer, which sees the team take on Pakistan for a three-Test series starting in mid-December before two Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is againt the West Indies.
The team will then tour New Zealand for three T20Is and two Tests, the latter the first five-day matches they have played in the country since 2016.
Fox Cricket show all Australian matches at home and overseas except for Ashes Tests and the World Test Championship final – 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 began the year with a clean sweep of matches against Pakistan across both ODI and T20I formats.
They then headed to South Africa and successfully defended their T20 World Cup title, going undefeated through the group stage before holding off India and South Africa in the semi-final and final respectively.
The team successfully retained the women’s Ashes despite a stirring fight from England; they won the one-off Test and the first of three T20Is, before losing the next two and the first ODI to lead to fears of an England series win for the first time since 2014.
However, they recovered to win a thrilling second ODI by three runs, though England again won the final match to draw the series.
The summer fixture has also been released, with the team taking on the Proteas in February in a one-off Test match.
First, though, they will head to India for a rare Test in Mumbai, before three ODIs and T20Is each.
