While Western Australia celebrate, Queensland and South Australia find themselves on the losing end. Cricket Australia rolls out the schedule around the Big Bash, prioritizing its alignment with Australian players’ availability during the final three weeks of January.

South Australia’s hope for a day-night Test before Christmas, backed by the government and cricket association, has been dashed. Instead, Adelaide will host the second Test, with Brisbane following suit for the third. Melbourne and Sydney will retain their traditional slots for the Boxing Day and New Year’s Tests, respectively.

Cricket Australia is yet to release the schedule. The details still being finalized for the Big Bash and Women’s Big Bash. A Cricket Australia spokesman emphasised, “The schedule is yet to be finalized,” as quoted by watoday.com.au, hinting at more surprises to come.

The decision to commence the series in Perth is not surprising, given Australia’s strong history at Perth Stadium. In recent years, Test cricket attendance at the stadium has been low, prompting efforts to enhance the popularity of Test cricket in Perth. One strategy involves scheduling Test matches during prime-time broadcast slots, strategically leading into the Big Bash.

With powerhouse teams like India and England set to tour Australia in the next two years, it is anticipated that Perth’s Test attendance will rise significantly. Hosting the series opener and a day-night Test sets the stage for a successful lead-in to the Big Bash, ensuring continuous cricket action from mid-December to late January.

The looming IPL also plays a role in shaping Australia’s squad for the Twenty20 World Cup.
