Cricket Australia (CA) have confirmed their summer schedule for both their men's and women's sides as both teams prepare for a busy 2014-15 season.
International Cricket in Australia 2014-15
Just four Tests for Australia this summer
Redeveloped Adelaide Oval opens the international season
South Africa play Australia in an ODI at the SCG for the first time since 2002, and at the MCG for the first time since 2006
Manuka Oval gets its second ODI in three years
Brisbane hosts its first Test against India since 2003
Blundstone Arena (Bellerive Oval) hosts an Australia-England ODI to launch the new Western Stand
The women host Pakistan and the West Indies before the men take on South Africa, India and England prior to co-hosting the 2015 World Cup with New Zealand.
Reigning world champions at both 20 and 50-over level, the women will play four One-Day and four Twenty20 Internationals against Pakistan in August and September.
November will see them take on the West Indies in the same number of games in each format and the final three Twenty20 Internationals will be double headers with the men, who host South Africa for three Twenty20s which are followed by five ODIs.
India arrive in late November and they will play a brace of two-day warm-up games ahead of a four-Test series that visits Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne through December and January.
Attention then switches to ODIs and after both India play England in a warm-up and India also play the Prime Minister's XI, the three sides compete in an ODI tri-series which concludes with the final on 1st February.
"The next 12 months will have something for everyone," CA Chief Executive James Sutherland said.
"It contains some refinements from last season that benefits both players and fans. Never before have we had so much high quality cricket to offer around Australia, whether it’s international or domestic, men’s or women’s, or played with a red or white ball."Including the men’s Australia A series, which is being played in Brisbane, Townsville and Darwin during July and August, international or Australia A cricket will be played in every state and territory around the country over the next 12 months."CA is responsible for the scheduling of all international and domestic matches and the priority this summer has been finding a balance across the country to ensure fans enjoy what will be a sensational summer of cricket."While we only had four Commonwealth Bank Tests to schedule, there’s a full program of men’s and women’s limited overs matches, as well as the various competitions that make Australian domestic cricket the toughest and most competitive in the world."The 2014-15 schedule looks very different to previous summers due in large part to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 that we are co-hosting with New Zealand for the first time in 23 years."Australian fans will be able to watch more cricket than ever before, whether it’s our number one-ranked Test and ODI men’s teams, our dual world champion Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars, or any of the state or BBL teams that play in our domestic competitions."With a Test series against India, ODIs against the top teams in world cricket, the ICC Cricket World Cup and another strong domestic calendar, this year promises to be even bigger," he addded.
