Australia will definitely feel the heat this summer after Cricket Australia revealed that they will be playing a limited overs series against South Africa in November, a four-Test series against India in December to January and an ODI tri-series involving India and England in January to February.

Following all those series, Australia will play in the World Cup, which they are hosting along with New Zealand.

Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland revealed that Australia’s summer schedule was packed with limited overs matches in order to get them prepared for the World Cup.

Meanwhile, the board failed to announce the dates for the Big Bash League (BBL), but did state that it would be cut down from 50 to 43 days.
