Starc celebrates a wicketThe Australian cricket team are look ahead towards a tour of Bangladesh before the Ashes roll around in 2017-18.

The Champions Trophy, played in England during June, saw Australia have two wash-outs and a loss to England, meaning they failed to make the semi-final stage.

Australia’s next confirmed assignment is a two-Test tour of Bangladesh. It was originally scheduled to be played in 2015, but was delayed due to security issues. Concerns are growing that this rescheduled tour will be called off as well though, with Cricket Australia’s pay dispute still leaving players unemployed.

The Ashes kicks off the home summer, headlining a bumper summer of cricket in Australia. It begins in Brisbane on November 23, with a Day-Night Test to follow at the Adelaide Oval.

Perth will host the third Test at the W.A.C.A, with the new Perth Stadium losing the race against time to be ready for the match.

The series will finish with the traditional Boxing Day and New Years Test matches in Melbourne and Sydney respectively.

It will then be on to a five-match One-Day International series against the English. That gets underway at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on January 14, with Perth to host the final match on January 28.

Adelaide once again plays host to an Australia Day match, while Brisbane and Sydney will be the venues for the other two matches.

A tri-nation T20 series rounds out the home fixtures for Australia, with the series split between Australia and New Zealand, seeing no neutral matches being played.

South Africa have announced they will be hosting a four-test series against Australia in 2018, the first four-Test series between the two sides since South Africa returned to international cricket. The series gets underway on March 1.
