Cricket Australia: Latest Updates, Results and Fixtures


Cricket Australia: History, News, Team and Future Plans




Cricket is one of the most popular sports in Australia, with a rich history and a passionate fan base. Cricket Australia is the governing body of cricket in the country, responsible for overseeing the development and promotion of the game at all levels. In this article, we will explore the history, news, team and future plans of Cricket Australia.


History of Cricket Australia




Cricket has been played in Australia for over 210 years, since the first recorded match in Sydney in 1803. However, it was not until the late 19th century that cricket became more organised and professionalised in the country.

The origins of cricket in Australia




The first cricket clubs in Australia were formed in the 1820s and 1830s, mainly by British settlers and soldiers. By the 1850s, intercolonial matches between New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Queensland became regular events, attracting large crowds and media attention. Cricket also spread to Western Australia and New Zealand, as well as to Indigenous communities.


The formation of the governing body




The first central administrative body for cricket in Australia was established in 1892, when delegates from New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria formed the Australasian Cricket Council. However, this council disbanded in 1899 due to disagreements over finances and fixtures. In 1905, a new body called the Australian Board of Control for International Cricket was formed, with representatives from all six states. This board changed its name to the Australian Cricket Board in 1973, and then to Cricket Australia in 2003.


The first Australian team to tour England




In 1868, an Aboriginal cricket team became the first Australian team to tour England, playing 47 matches against various clubs and counties. The team was captained by Charles Lawrence, a former English cricketer who had settled in Australia. The tour was a success both on and off the field, as the Aboriginal players impressed with their skills and attracted public curiosity and admiration.


In 1877, a non-Indigenous Australian team toured England for the first time, playing two matches against an English side that were later recognised as the first official Test matches. The Australians won both matches, shocking the English cricket establishment and sparking a fierce rivalry that continues to this day.

The current series began on June 15 at Edgbaston, Birmingham, with a nail-biting finish on June 20. Chasing a target of 281 runs on the final day, Australia were reduced to 227-8 before captain Pat Cummins led a remarkable fightback with an unbeaten 44. He hit the winning boundary with two wickets remaining, giving Australia a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

Australian cricket launches five-year strategic plan to grow the game




On June 1, Cricket Australia unveiled its new strategic plan for 2023-2027, titled "A Sport for All Australians". The plan outlines the vision, mission, values and priorities of the organisation, as well as the key initiatives and targets to achieve them. The plan aims to make cricket more accessible, inclusive, diverse and sustainable in the country, as well as to enhance the performance and reputation of the national teams.


Some of the key initiatives in the plan include: increasing female participation and leadership in cricket; supporting Indigenous, multicultural and disability cricket; investing in grassroots facilities and programs; developing a world-class high-performance system; strengthening domestic competitions and pathways; engaging fans and customers through digital and live experiences; and fostering a culture of integrity, excellence and collaboration within Cricket Australia.


Australia's FTP: Who, where and when until 2027




The Future Tours Programme (FTP) is a schedule of international cricket matches that is agreed upon by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and its member countries. The FTP covers a period of eight years, with the current cycle running from 2019 to 2027. The FTP ensures that all countries have a balanced and fair opportunity to play against each other in all three formats of the game: Test, One-Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 International (T20I).


According to the FTP, Australia will play a total of 119 matches across all formats until 2027, including 43 Tests, 40 ODIs and 36 T20Is. Australia will host 59 matches at home, while touring 14 different countries for the remaining 60 matches. Australia will also participate in four ICC events during this period: the T20 World Cup in 2022, 2024 and 2026, and the ODI World Cup in 2023.
