Australia will take to Adelaide Oval against the old foe in the form of the only day-night men’s Ashes Test match starting Thursday, 16 December, and two women’s internationals against England.
The first women’s match is a Twenty20 International between the fierce rivals on Thursday, 10 February, followed by the fist ODI on Sunday, 13 February, in a triumphant return of women’s cricket to South Australia.
It is expected that Adelaide Oval will be at 100 per cent capacity for the contests.
SACA Chief Executive Keith Bradshaw said:
“This fixture is a huge win for Members and fans alike, as we welcome the England men’s team to Adelaide Oval for the 70th time in our history.
“This is especially significant and timely as we are about to enter SACA’s 150th year, and hopefully the celebrations are capped with two winning series.
“We are also delighted with the return of women’s cricket to Adelaide Oval as the momentum proves to be unstoppable, and we can’t wait to watch Megan Schutt, and hopefully Tahlia McGrath and Darcie Brown in action.
The international summer ends with a men’s T20I against Sri Lanka on the night of Friday, 18 February, and, paired with the future release of W/BBL fixtures, will cap an epic summer for cricket lovers in South Australia.
Further details on ticket access will be communicated in due course, and in conjunction with Adelaide Oval’s COVID Management Plan.
The matches and travel remain subject to any relevant government restrictions or requirements.
