Two years of COVID delays and the World Twenty20 Championship gave Australian cricketers their busiest summer in Australian history, as Cricket Australia revealed a record-breaking 27 mens fixtures — including an Adelaide Oval Test with the West Indies playing Pink Ball. Cricket Australia decided to break tradition and awarded Optus Stadium in Perth with the first Test of the Home Summer, Adelaide Oval would then host the second and final Test against West Indies, which would form part of the World Test Championship. Australia would then play the West Indies and England in a White-Ball Series both sides of a Twenty20 World Cup, with England set to be managed by Australias former Women’s mentor Matthew Mott.

Australia will also head to India for a T20 series: cricket Australia play three matches in September, with the women’s team travelling to play five matches in December. While the exact dates for the overseas tours of India are still being worked out, Australia will play two matches against West Indies at Gold Coast and three matches against England at Brisbane and Canberra before a Twenty20 exhibition begins. Cricket South Africa has asked the Australians to move their tri-match One-Day International Series schedule, which is scheduled for 12-17 January next year.

The mens and womens schedule released by Cricket Australia today includes 28 Tests and limited-overs internationals against Zimbabwe, New Zealand, West Indies, England, South Africa and Pakistan, stretching from the end of August until the end of January. Early-season cricket is played at Townsville and Cairns against Zimbabwe and New Zealand, then Australia leaves for a three-match Twenty20 series in India.

The Men’s National Team then turns its attentions to Limited Overs Cricket, taking on New Zealand over the course of late January and early February over three ODIs in the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy, as well as a T20I. The mens team then returns to red-ball cricket for one-off Tests against Afghanistan at Hobart, with Tim Paine set to captain the team in Tasmania, their home state, for the first time.

Meanwhile, the womens national team played three ODIs and T20s against Pakistan in January, without any Tests on the schedule. The final of these matches will potentially see Perth Stadium booked for the back of the mens international schedule, the city having missed out on high-level cricket for two summers because of strict Western Australian border closures. The Australians have also taken over the traditional Brisbane role of hosting the seasons first Test. The packed summer 2022-23 schedule also includes ODI series against Zimbabwe (28-Sept 3) and New Zealand (6-Sept 11), followed by a T20I series against West Indies before Australias meeting with England. A heavy fixture list at home in August would see Australias mens national team play a minimum of 27 matches in front of their home supporters, rising to 29 should they qualify for the T20 World Cup Final at Melbourne on November 13.

Cricket Australia said the reduced domestic schedule for women was because of a number of factors including the Commonwealth Games in England in July-August and keeping players fresh ahead of the T20 World Cup defense in South Africa in February. In addition to the Ashes series, the Australian men’s team will play Afghanistan in Tests for the first time before finishing the year with nine Dettol ODIs and T20s against New Zealand and Sri Lanka, and the Australian women’s team will play India early in the 2021-22 season.

As things stand, resources for hosting high-level international and domestic cricket over such a jam-packed summer will be stretched to their limits, though Hobart has again secured one international match, the January 12 mens ODI between Australia and South Africa.
