The ECB announce the 2013 Ashes fixtures

The ECB has announced the dates for the 2013 Ashes fixtures, as well as the limited overs fixtures to follow thereafter. We still have to endure five match ODI fixtures but the main event is of course the Ashes series where our boys will be battling out in the land of the old enemy to regain the Urn.

There is a limited overs battle just around the corner though for the Green and Gold players as they take a trip over to the United Kingdom to play England and a once off match against Ireland in Belfast.

Below you will find the fixtures for the 2013 Ashes series but don't forget to check out the Fixtures tab right here at the Baggy Green Blog to see where and when the boys will be playing the respective forms of the game.

The limited overs UK tour starts on 21 June 2012.

Here's the Squad in case you missed it or need a refresher:
Michael Clarke (captain), Shane Watson, George Bailey, Pat Cummins, Xavier Doherty, Ben Hilfenhaus, Michael Hussey, David Hussey, Mitchell Johnson, Brett Lee, Clint McKay, James Pattinson, Steve Smith, Matthew Wade (wk), David Warner.

Isn't the squad you listed Australia A - or are they one and the same this tour?

Sid the Gnome said...

I think I've missed something - I thought Johnson and Pattinson were only in the A squad?

Ian said...

That's the squad.

Here's the Australia A Squad for you:

Aus A Tour is in July so likely to follow after the Australia v England ODIs.

Thanks Ian. It seems I've been in some sort of bubble, waiting for the squad to be announced when it already had been. Blurgh.

No worries Kirby.

I am only just managing to keep in the loop as well of what's going on.

I lost momentum!
