Six Test matches in Australia's 2018-19 home season

Adelaide loses international cricket on Australia Day

Test cricket will begin in December and extend into February after Cricket Australia confirmed big changes in the upcoming summer's schedule. Discussions about the start time are still ongoing between Cricket Australia and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Cricket Australia is still working to convince India to play a day-night Test in Adelaide, but the Gabba will host a pink-ball affair.

"It's a summer which will contain plenty of high-quality cricket and some exciting new additions to the Australian cricket calendar", Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland said. They also haven't given their consent for the Day-Night Test against the Windies later this year.

Australia has hosted New Zealand, South Africa and England in day-night tests at Adelaide Oval, winning all three of the pink ball matches.

The newly built Perth stadium will also make its debut when India and Australia face-off in second test match of the series.

Canberra's Manuka Oval will then host its first test match from February 1 when the home side meet Sri Lanka in their second and final fixture.

Indians on tour of Australia will be playing three T20 Internationals, four Tests and three One Day Internationals between November 21 and January 18 this winter.

However, Australian men's global summer will start at Perth Stadium with an ODI between Australia and South Africa on November 4.

The Test series will be followed by the three limited-overs one-day internationals on January 12 (Sydney), January 15 (Adelaide) and January 18 (Melbourne).

A T20 match against South Africa in November will be played at the Gold Coast's Metricon Stadium, which recently hosted the Commonwealth Games.

"This will be a win for fans, with less overlap with the Big Bash (League), giving Australians the opportunity to see Australia's best players involved in limited-overs cricket at global and domestic level", pointed out Sutherland.

"The Border-Gavaskar Trophy promises to be a bumper series, and it will be headlined by the world famous Boxing Day Test at the MCG", Sutherland said.

November 17 - Australia v South Africa, Carrara Stadium, Gold Coast, T20I.
