Cricket News: Australia Cricket Schedule 2023-24: 5 Tests, 3 ODIs, 3 T20Is | Which teams are touring Australia in season 2023/24?

Australia, fresh off their superb World Cup triumph in India, will play a total of five Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is in their home season from December to February. Pat Cummins’ team will face Pakistan and West Indies in the Tests, before the Australians play six white-ball games against West Indies in February.

Australia home schedule 2023-24: Pakistan and West Indies to tour

Pakistan will play three Tests downunder, including the Boxing Day Test. West Indies will play two. Both series are part of the World Test Championship (WTC), which Australia are seeking to successfully defend after winning the title in June.

Tests vs. Pakistan:

  • 1st Test: December 14-18 2023, Optus Stadium, Perth.
  • 2nd Test: December 26-30 2023, Melbourne Cricket Ground.
  • 3rd Test: January 3-7 2024, Sydney Cricket Ground.

Pakistan will be under the leadership of new captain Shan Masood, who replaced Babar Azam after Pakistan’s unsuccessful World Cup campaign. Pakistan have not won a Test in Australia since 1995, and have a huge task in front of them with some inexperienced players and no Naseem Shah available due to injury. In their previous visit to Australia back in 2019, Pakistan lost both Tests by an innings. David Warner hit 335* at Adelaide.

Previously, Warner said the Sydney Test will be his last. Australia will be aiming to send him out on a high.

Tests vs. West Indies:

  • 1st Test: January 17-21 2024, Adelaide Oval.
  • 2nd Test: January 25-29 2024, Gabba, Brisbane (D/N).

For the second-straight year, West Indies will tour Australia. They struggled last year, losing 2-0 despite showing some fight with the bat in the Perth Test. Again, it promises to be a tough ask for Kraigg Brathwaite’s team, especially with a day/night Test to be played in Brisbane.

ODIs vs. West Indies:

  • 1st ODI: Friday February 2, 2024, Melbourne Cricket Ground.
  • 2nd ODI: Sunday February 4, 2024, Sydney Cricket Ground.
  • 3rd ODI: Tuesday February 6, 2024, Manuka Oval, Canberra.

T20Is vs. West Indies:

  • 1st T20I: Friday February 9, 2024, Bellerive Oval, Hobart.
  • 2nd T20I: Sunday February 11, 2024, Adelaide Oval.
  • 3rd T20I: Tuesday February 13, 2024, Optus Stadium, Perth.

Australia’s first ODIs since winning the World Cup will be against the Windies at Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra in February. It will be interesting to see if the Australians test some new talent especially in the T20Is to follow as the series will take place following the Big Bash League.

The home season will round off in Perth before the Australians travel to New Zealand for three T20Is and two Tests. It will be Australia’s first Test tour of New Zealand since 2016.
