Cricket Australia has announced the schedule for both the men’s and women’s cricket teams for the Australian summer, starting from the last week of November and ending in the middle of February. This is an essential summer for the Australians since both the women’s and men’s ashes series have been scheduled. Both the ashes were retained when the teams faced off in England back in 2019. It was a great summer of cricket in England for Australia, ensuring they stamped their authority back then. Everything would be at stake for both England and Australia when they start their tour in the last month of 2021. The Men’s T20 World Cup, which takes place in India this year, will be followed by the Australian summer, making the last months of the year essential.
