England to host Australia in ODI series in 2018

Wednesday, 6 September 2017 :  England will host Australia in six limited-overs matches next summer, in between Test series against Pakistan and India.

England and Australia will play five one-day internationals and a Twenty20 in June – four months after the sides meet in Australia following the Ashes.

Joe Root’s side play two Tests against Pakistan starting on 24 May before facing Scotland in an ODI in Edinburgh.

They also play three T20s, three ODIs and five Tests against India.

The Tests, which start on 1 August, will be held at Edgbaston, Lord’s, Trent Bridge, Southampton and The Oval.

England lost a five-Test series 4-0 in India last winter, after which Alastair Cook resigned as captain and ODI skipper Root was appointed as his successor.

When India last toured in 2014, England won the Test series 3-1, while Pakistan drew a four-Test series 2-2 in England in 2016.

Lord’s and Headingley will host the Tests against Pakistan next summer.

The final of county cricket’s One-Day Cup will be held at Lord’s on 30 June, while Edgbaston will again stage T20 Blast Finals Day on 15 September.
