Western Australian fans will be treated to some of Australia’s biggest cricket rivalries as England and New Zealand head to Perth during the 2021-22 international season.
In the 51 years of Test Matches being held in Perth, the fifth Vodafone Ashes Test and potential series decider will be a thrilling new experience for WACA Members and fans, with the battle heading to Perth Stadium for the first time starting Friday 14 January.
Historically England have struggled in Western Australia, having only won one Test match (1978-79) at the WACA Ground since 1970.
Perth Stadium is quickly becoming another fortress for opposition teams to overcome, with Australia boasting an unbeaten Test record at the venue after claiming wins against New Zealand and India already.
The fixtures in Perth will wrap up with a men’s ODI against New Zealand on Sunday 30 January at Perth Stadium, the perfect summer entertainment.
Christina Matthews - WACA CEO said;
“We are thrilled about a big summer of international cricket coming to Perth this year, this season has something for everyone.
“Having the fifth Test at Perth Stadium is a new experience for our Members and fans and from the previous Test matches played there, it’s sure to be another exciting battle.
“New Zealand is always a great match up with the Aussie team, and with both Test and ODI formats throughout January, Perth will get to experience lots of cricket over the summer.”
The women’s international season begins with a series against India, the final venues and dates of which are still being finalised with the BCCI.
