The home summer for the Australian men’s team begins with the Gillette One-Day International series at Perth Stadium (4 November), Adelaide Oval (9 November), and Blundstone Arena (11 November), and a Gillette T20INTL match against South Africa at the Gold Coast’s Metricon Stadium on 17 November.

The men’s international season concludes with a two-match Test series against Sri Lanka including a day-night Test at the Gabba (24-28 January) and the inaugural Test at Manuka Oval (1-5 February).
Commenting on the eve of tickets going on sale for the 2018-19 Men’s international cricket season, Cricket Australia Chief Executive Officer James Sutherland said:
“We are excited to be releasing tickets for the 2018-19 men’s international cricket season tomorrow, giving fans across the country time to purchase tickets and plan out their summer.
“With Australia set to host three exciting opponents in South Africa, India, and Sri Lanka, the cricket loving public can look forward to highly entertaining and hard fought cricket across the three international formats.
“This season is also notable for the variety of venues hosting international cricket, with Perth Stadium and Manuka Oval both set to host their inaugural Test matches and the Gold Coast’s Metricon Stadium hosting international cricket for the first time, complementing traditional cricket venues across the country.”
In addition to world class cricket, attendees can look forward to plenty of other fun and excitement off the field to entertain them.
A highlight for the summer will be the free Indian Cultural Festival at the Cricket, created in partnership between Cricket Australia and the Victorian Government and being held in Yarra Park outside the iconic MCG to coincide with the Boxing Day Test.
Australia’s largest ever Festival at the Cricket will launch on 23 December, with an appearance and autograph signing opportunity with both the Australian and Indian cricket teams.
An array of the traditional flavours of India will be on offer alongside carnival rides, face painting, giveaways, cricket games and activities, music and entertainment.
The Festival will reopen on 26 and 27 December for Days 1 and 2 of the Boxing Day Test.
This free event is open to the general public, and will feature everything we love about cricket, food, family fun and entertainment, all combining in a showcase of Indian culture that is not to be missed.
Up to 19 tickets can be purchased direct via the authorised ticket agent, Ticketek for venues excluding Perth Stadium which is Ticketmaster, as this is the only way to ensure the tickets are legitimate and sold at the official price.
Groups of 20 or more can purchase tickets for the 2018-19 season now, with hospitality and Cricket Australia Travel Office packages also currently available.
Further information about these can be found at www.cricket.com.au/tickets.
The Australian Women’s Cricket Team will be taking on New Zealand in Commonwealth Bank Women’s T20INTLs in October ahead of the ICC Women’s World T20 campaign in West Indies, and then will again host New Zealand for Commonwealth Bank ODI matches in February 2019.
Tickets will be on sale from August 1, with broadcast details for this series to be announced in due course.
