Australia Fixes Dates for 2013 Home Leg of Ashes Cricket Series

Australia will host next year’s Ashes cricket opener against England 12 weeks after the teams are scheduled to finish their series in the U.K.

Cricket Australia today announced the dates for the 2013-14 edition of the sport’s oldest international rivalry, with the first match starting Nov. 21 in Brisbane. Further Tests will take place in Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne with the series finale in Sydney scheduled to finish Jan. 7, 2014.

England, which holds the Ashes after a 3-1 away victory in 2010-11, hosts Australia in the U.K. next year in a five-match series finishing Aug. 25. The teams are playing back-to-back home-and-away contests to prevent a quick turnaround between the Ashes and the 2015 World Cup, which will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand early that year.

England, which will get three tuneup matches before the opening Test and another tour game after the series opener, will also play five one-day internationals and three Twenty20 games in Australia, with those dates yet to be released.
