2018/19 Australian Cricket Schedule Released
South Africa, India and Sri Lanka are coming to Australian shores, with Cricket Australia releasing its 2018/19 Summer of Cricket schedule this week.
Cricket fans across the Country will enjoy more matches, new venues and a restructured international season.
For the first time, international cricket will be played on the Gold Coast; Metricon Stadium playing host to Australia’s T20 clash with South Africa. The state-of-the-art Perth Stadium and Canberra’s Manuka Oval will both host Test cricket for the first time.
The summer opens with a one-day clash between Australia and the Proteas in Perth on November 4. Perth Stadium will then host its maiden Test from December 14 when India visit. The first Test against India begins in Adelaide on December 6.
According to Cricket Australia Chief James Sunderland, “It’s a summer which will contain plenty of high-quality cricket, and some exciting new additions to the Australian cricket calendar. Overall, there are more international matches being played across more locations around the country than in previous years, and we believe this program has something for all cricket fans.”
The broadcasting of Cricket will also undergo a major change, with Channel Seven assuming control of Test and International limited overs cricket from Channel Nine. The Big Bash will also be hosted by Channel Seven in conjunction with Foxtel, replacing Channel 10.
