Cricket News: Australia Cricket Schedule 2022-23: Bumper Tours & World Cups | Australia men’s cricket team schedule 2022 and 2023

The Australia men’s cricket team has a bumper schedule over 2022-23, with huge tours, high-profile visits and two World Cups headlining the calendar.

Soon after the 2022 Indian Premier League concludes, Australia will tour Sri Lanka for three T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests, of which they have named a 34-man squad. The last time Australia toured Sri Lanka, they were blanked 3-0 in the Tests, and will now want redemption especially after a morale-building 1-0 win in challenging conditions in Pakistan earlier this year.

Australia’s home season will kick off in August with three ODIs in Townsville against Zimbabwe. This series was originally scheduled for 2020 but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, New Zealand are set to visit for three ODIs all to be played in Cairns. This will be New Zealand’s first appearance in Australia since the Sydney ODI behind closed doors in March 2020.

It is believed Australia tour India for three T20Is in September, but that is yet to be confirmed. Australia will then play five T20Is at home against West Indies and England, before aiming to defend their T20 World Cup crown at home in October-November. Four days after the World Cup Final, Australia will begin their three-match ODI series vs England.

Australia Cricket Schedule 2022-23: Australia will aim to defend their T20 World Cup crown on home soil.

Then, it will be all about the Tests. West Indies will play two Test matches down under, followed by a highly-anticipated visit by South Africa for three matches and then a three-match ODI series. The Proteas have an excellent record in Australia, and will be aiming to continue that in 2022-23.

Following the conclusion of the home season, Australia will tour India for four Test matches in February-March 2023. Not since 2004 have the Aussies won a Test series in India, and they have only tasted success once in 14 matches on Indian soil since that historic series win.

In June-July 2023, Australia will attempt to retain the Ashes on enemy soil. Steve Smith and Pat Cummins led the way in England in 2019, as they retained the urn courtesy of a 2-2 series draw.

Following that, Pat Cummins’ team will tour South Africa in August 2023 for three Tests. This series was scheduled for March 2021, but Australia pulled out at the 11th hour due to COVID-19. However, the tour of South Africa might not be set in stone, as the 2023 ODI World Cup is also scheduled for August in India.
