Cricket Australia announces action-packed 2022-23 International schedule
Cricket Australia is pleased to announce the international schedule for an action-packed 2022-23 summer of cricket for our world champion women’s and men’s teams.
The schedule contains more days of international cricket than ever before with six teams touring Australia, the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup being hosted in Australia and overseas tours for the women’s and men’s teams.
- Prime time viewing for our No.1 ranked men’s Test team, with international cricket returning to Perth for the opening Test of the summer against the West Indies, followed by the Day/Night Adelaide Test and three Tests against South Africa over the Christmas holiday period.
- ICC World Cup Super League games against Zimbabwe, New Zealand, South Africa and England.
- A record six touring nations over the course of the summer outside of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.
- Australia seeking to defend its ICC Men’s T20 World Cup title on home soil.
- A six-match white-ball series against Pakistan as our No.1-ranked women’s team prepares to defend their T20 World Cup title.
- As well as our traditional major venues, international cricket is coming to several regional markets across the country including Cairns, Townsville and the Gold Coast.
Cricket fans in Australia will be able to watch and listen to the 2022-23 summer of cricket across Cricket Australia’s broadcast partners Foxtel, Channel 7, Kayo, the ABC, SEN and Triple M.
Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockley said:
“Following arguably the most successful summer in our cricket history last year, we are thrilled to announce an action-packed international schedule for our outstanding women’s and men’s teams.
“We are hosting a record six touring nations to Australia this season, in addition to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. It promises to be an incredible summer.
“We are delighted that Test cricket is coming back to Perth Stadium for the first Test of the summer versus the West Indies, after almost three years without international cricket, and we look forward to hosting South Africa over Boxing Day and New Year for the first time since 2008.
“Both our teams have the opportunity to defend their T20 World Cup titles, the men’s team on home soil and the women’s team in South Africa, as our exceptional players inspire the next generation of cricketers in the shortest format of the game.
“I would like to take this opportunity to wish our No.1-ranked women’s team the best of luck as they head to Ireland and then England for the Commonwealth Games. It’s the start of an exciting eight months for the team that also includes a tour to India, home series against Pakistan, the opportunity to play in the Hundred and our own extended domestic season, before the T20 World Cup.
“After two years of being impacted by the pandemic, the 2022-23 home summer will be an especially busy one for the Australian men’s team as we honour our commitments to the ICC’s Future Tours Program. This provides important opportunities to progress towards ICC World Test Championship Final qualification as well as build up for the ICC Men's One-Day World Cup in India in 2023.
“Whilst the timing of the ODI series against South Africa is set out in the Future Tours Program, we have had a recent request from Cricket South Africa to reconsider the dates of the three games, but have been unable to find alternative dates as yet.
“Many thanks again to our broadcasters, partners, touring teams and everyone involved in cricket across the country for ensuring we can host such an exciting summer of cricket and most of all we can’t wait to welcome back fans to our world-class venues to watch our world-leading players.”
