Last updated: 28 February, 2017

Starc celebrates a wicketThe Australian cricket team has an incredibly busy summer schedule in 2016-17, with matches against South Africa, Pakistan, New Zealand and Sri Lanka immediately followed by a tour to India. Here are all the details of the Australian cricket fixtures.

The Australian cricket team endured a difficult run of form in the second half of 2016, losing a Test series in Sri Lanka, being whitewashed in their ODI tour of South Africa, and then losing their Test series against the Proteas 2-1 on home soil.

However, the final match of that series has offered some optimism for Aussie cricket fans, with a host of debutants helping the side to a seven-wicket win.

The side then continued their resurgence by whitewashing New Zealand 3-0 during the three-match Chappell-Hadlee ODI series and repeating that scoreline during the three-Test series at home against Pakistan. The side then defeated Pakistan in a five-match ODI series 4-1.

Australia then lost a three-match ODI series in New Zealand 2-0, although they were missing a number of key players including captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner. They then fell to Sri Lanka 2-1 in a three-match T20 series.

That series, however, featured a severely weakened Australian side, with the Test side already in India preparing for their daunting Test series, which started on February 23.

Australia then head to England for the Champions Trophy, where they will play New Zealand, Bangladesh and England.

The schedule for the next summer of cricket, featuring the 2017-18 Ashes series, has also been announced, with the Adelaide Oval to host the first ever day-night Test match between Australia and England.

There is also a chance for the new Perth Stadium to make its Test match debut, with Cricket Australia holding off on confirming a venue for the third Ashes Test until closer to the series to track the construction of the 60,000-seat venue.

South Africa have also announced hosting a four-test series tour by Australia in 2018, the first four-Test series between the two sides since South Africa returned to international cricket.
