Here is what CA’s CEO Nick Hockley Had To Say
“The Ashes series is one of the most important sporting events in the world, according to Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockley, and we are looking forward to these highly anticipated contests in England next year.
“The most difficult challenge is keeping the Ashes away from home. Our teams are overjoyed at the prospect of delving into Ashes lore.
In preparation for the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia, Australia will play a T20I series in England early next month. In a three-match Dettol One-Day International Series, Australia will host England in Adelaide (17 November), Sydney (19 November), and Melbourne (22 November) (November 20). 22nd of November.
We are excited to host England in two highly anticipated Dettol T20I and ODI Series this summer, on either side of the T20 World Cup.
The Lord’s Test Match
Prior to the Ashes, the men’s team will host Ireland in a four-day Test at Lord’s beginning on June 1, 2023. The two teams last competed there in a test in 2019. England will also host three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against Ireland from September 20 to September 26 at Headingley, Trent Bridge, and Bristol.
“As a player, I can say with certainty that Test cricket is the pinnacle of our sport. We were fortunate to play a Test against England at Lord’s in 2019, which was a memorable experience for both players and fans, so the news that we will be returning to Lord’s in 2020 is very encouraging.” Ireland’s Test captain, Andrew Balbirnie, stated.
“Our final Test against England was in 2019, so we are eager to return to red-ball cricket the following year. This is one of four Tests scheduled for 2023, which is critical for a young team like this. Multi-day cricket is the most effective way to learn, develop, and assess your skills “He insisted.
