    Further schedule changes confirmed ahead of the Vodafone Ashes

    Cricket Australia has today confirmed updates to the 2021-22 summer of cricket schedule, including the postponement of the scheduled men's Test against Afghanistan and further Marsh Sheffield Shield, Marsh One-Day Cup fixtures, as well as men’s Ashes tour matches.

    Following extensive consultation with relevant stakeholders, Cricket Australia and the Afghanistan Cricket Board have agreed to postpone the inaugural men’s Test match against Afghanistan which was set to be played in Hobart on November 27.

    CA is committed to support growing the game for women and men in Afghanistan and around the world, however, given the present uncertainty, CA felt it necessary to postpone the Test match until a later time when the situation is clearer. CA looks forward to hosting Afghanistan players in the BBL this season, who are great ambassadors for the game, and to hosting both the Afghanistan women’s and men’s team in the not too distant future.

    To ensure the best possible preparation for the Vodafone Men’s Ashes Series, an extended Australian squad will have an internal three-day match opportunity from December 1-3 at Redlands in Brisbane. The squad will be selected and announced in mid-November.

    England has also had its tour matches confirmed with a three-day warm up match between the England men’s team and the England Lions scheduled at Redlands from November 23-25.

    The two England sides will also play a four-day warm up match at Ian Healy Oval in Brisbane from November 30 to December 3, with the recently developed oval part of the new state-of-the-art National Cricket Campus.

    That will be the final preparation for both sides before the Vodafone Men’s Ashes Series commences at the Gabba on December 8, while Australia A will face the England Lions in a four-day match at Ian Healy Oval from December 9-12.

    Following the change to the Test schedule, Tasmania and Western Australia will play their upcoming Marsh Sheffield Shield match at Blundstone Arena on November 21-24 and a Marsh One-Day Cup match on November 26.

    South Australia will host Queensland in Adelaide for a Marsh Sheffield Shield match from November 23-26 at either Karen Rolton Oval or Adelaide Oval (depending on location of WBBL finals). The two sides will then play the final Marsh One Day Cup match before the KFC BBL break on November 28 at Adelaide Oval.

    Victoria and New South Wales have also had additional matches added to their November men’s domestic schedules, with the two sides set to face off in a third Marsh Sheffield Shield match from November 19-22 at the SCG and a Marsh One-Day Cup match at the same venue on November 24.

    Peter Roach, Cricket Australia’s Head of Cricket Operations and Scheduling, said:

    “The eve of an Ashes summer is an exciting time for every cricket fan, and it’s fantastic to confirm a schedule that provides both teams with some excellent preparation in the lead up to the first ball at the Gabba.”

    “Just as importantly, we’re pleased to continue the Marsh Sheffield Shield and Marsh One-Day Cup competitions to ensure players are getting the opportunity to put their hand up for selection in Australia’s red and white-ball teams.

    “It’s brilliant to see so much elite cricket being played, particularly at the redeveloped Ian Healy Oval, and there is no doubt both the English and Australian teams are going to be well prepared leading into the first Vodafone Ashes Test."

    Marsh Sheffield Shield

    November 19-22: New South Wales vs Victoria – SCG

    November 21-24: Tasmania vs Western Australia – Blundstone Arena

    November 23-26: South Australia vs Queensland – Adelaide Oval or Karen Rolton Oval

    Marsh One-Day Cup

    England Men confirm coaching appointments for Australia tours

    England Men's Assistant Coach Graham Thorpe will head up the Ashes preparation period when the Test specialists and Lions arrive in Australia this weekend.

    The playing group and management will be based on the Gold Coast for their 14-day quarantine period before moving to Brisbane to play two intra-squad warm-up matches later this month.

    The extended England Men's Team and the Lions squad will be arriving in Australia on Saturday ahead of the Ashes Series, starting on 8 December 8 at the Gabba.

    Cricket Australia is working with the Queensland Government and Queensland Health to prioritise the health and safety of the community, players and support staff.

    The team will arrive at Brisbane airport and will then head to the Gold Coast for their quarantine period.

    The team will quarantine for 14 days but have an exemption to undertake training at Metricon Stadium under strict quarantine conditions from 10 November to 20 November.

    Working alongside Thorpe will be Elite Pace Bowling Coach Jon Lewis. The Lions contingent will have a wealth of experience, including Carl Hopkinson (Elite Fielding Coach), Bruce French (Wicketkeeping Consultant) and Jonathan Trott (Batting Consultant). Completing the set-up will be Kent's Head of Talent Pathway Min Patel and Nottinghamshire coach Ant Botha, who have both been seconded from the County network for the tour.

    Once England's ICC Men's T20 World Cup commitments are complete and a 14-day quarantine period is served on the Gold Coast, England Men's Head Coach Chris Silverwood, Assistant Coach Paul Collingwood, Elite Spin Coach Jeetan Patel and Wicketkeeping Consultant James Foster will join the Ashes party in Brisbane.

    Commenting on the appointments for the tour of Australia, Mo Bobat, ECB Performance Director, said:

    "We are looking forward to getting our prep period underway on the Gold Coast ahead of the Ashes and Lions Tour, respectively. The coaching team selected has an excellent blend of credentials grounded in experiences through the England pathway and the wider county game. In addition to the specialist expertise, we have individuals in our coaching team that have experienced success in Australian conditions, which will benefit the players' preparation ahead of the Ashes and Lions competitive experiences.

    "For the period up until the end of the warm-up matches, the coaching team will assist both groups of players. However, once we start the final build-up to the first Ashes Test, we will then split into two distinct groups with the Lions preparing for their four-day match against Australia A on 9 December."

    Head Coach: Chris Silverwood

    They’re here — and their star player was front and centre

    England’s Test specialists arrived in Brisbane on Saturday ahead of this summer’s highly-anticipated Ashes series.

    Star all-rounder Ben Stokes, who was only added to his country’s squad last month after recovering from a finger injury and emerging from time away to prioritise his mental health, was part of the travelling party that touched down.

    Catch Australia take on the West Indies at the ICC T20 World Cup on Saturday night (9pm AEDT) on Kayo. New to Kayo? Start your free trial today.

    Stokes and Root led the first wave of England’s cricketers to land in Brisbane. The squad, still to be joined by members of England’s Twenty20 World Cup side, walked through the terminal and into a waiting bus bound for 14 days’ quarantine on the Gold Coast.

    The early arrival gives the team a month to acclimatise to the Australian summer before the first Test starts on December 8.

    Also among the arrivals was opening batsman Rory Burns, fast-bowler Jimmy Anderson and England stalwart Stuart Broad.

    Although the team will be under strict quarantine, Cricket Australia confirmed players would be allowed to train at Metricon Stadium throughout their isolation period.

    Stokes made his Ashes debut in 2013/14, scoring a maiden Test century in tough batting conditions in Perth but failing to prevent a 5-0 whitewash.

    England’s two most recent Ashes campaigns in Australia have not yielded a single win from 10 Tests.

    But before flying to Australia, England captain Root said India’s recovery from a humiliating 36 all out in the first Test in Adelaide before winning 2-1 earlier this year was an inspiration.

    “One thing I think we can take a lot of heart and confidence from is the way India went and played there in their (Australia’s) last home series,” Root told reporters.

    “They took them on in their own way, they played to their strengths, but they didn’t take a backward step at any stage.

    “They showed a lot of belief and a lot of character and came through a lot of adversity, especially off the back of that first game in Adelaide.”

    Troy Cooley to support England Men’s Ashes preparations

    England Men have confirmed the appointment of Troy Cooley as Consultant Pace Bowling Coach for the touring party’s preparation ahead of the Ashes Test series starting next month.

    The former England and Australian bowling coach will work under ECB’s Elite Pace Bowling Coach Jon Lewis supporting the bowlers’ preparations in Brisbane.

    Cooley will then assist the Lions seamers in their four-day match against Australia A starting on 9th December.

    The 55-year-old joined the Test specialists and the Lions during the three-day intra-squad warm-up match starting on Tuesday at Redlands, Brisbane.

    Commenting on the appointment of Cooley, Mo Bobat, ECB Performance Director, said:

    “It’s great to have someone with Troy’s expertise and experience supporting our Ashes prep and also working closely with our Lions pace bowlers. Troy’s understanding of what it takes to be successful in Australian conditions is second to none, and the players are sure to benefit hugely.”

    So, Cummins is the new Aussie Test captain.

    Good opportunity for him to win the Ashes as a captain.

    Both teams have unsettled batting lineups with Smith and Root to save day for them respectively.
    Duo of Cummins and Hazlewood will shift balance in favour of Aussies.
    My gut feeling, this will be final foreign tour of Anderson.

    Prediction: 3-1 in favour of Australia.
    Highest run getter - Labuschagne, Smith, Root
    Highest wicket taker - Hazlewood, Cummins, Leach (if played)
    Man Of The Series - Josh Hazlewood
