    Don't really see much point in Sri Lanka coming for a T20 and three ODIs. They could at least play a Test match. Nice to see some proper warm up matches before the Test series.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Oh **** off 7 ODI series. You'd think that Australia and England would've learnt after last years.

    Actually given its preparation for the WC i can see the logic behind having 7 ODIs next summer TBF.

    Not when you're scrapping an annual 3-match ODI series against NZ to do it.

    This. Playing 3 games against either team would be much better preparation than playing the same team 7 times, especially as Australia and England would most likely play each other at the WC just the once.

    Yeh but all against the same team? Would have been better having 5 vs England and 3 vs New Zealand, one extra game couldnt hurt.

    I never get why you can't have an even number of ODI matches.. Level series you say? have a NRR so runs count all the time.

    4 ODIs against England, 3 against NZ if you want just the 7. Also, I'm really looking forward to this match:
    Tour match v Australia A, 17-20 November, Hobart
    What Shield matches are between Nov 7 and Nov 25? It should be a decent chance to see the Aussies players play in the Shield finally!

    Maybe it might be best for Australia, but not for England - three ODIs just before a WC is woefully inadequate and the absolute last thing England need is to be travelling somewhere else (say, South Africa) just to play a few more ODIs as WC preparation.

    England have got a good deal and NZ have got a less good one - but hopefully they can fill the gap by playing lots against someone else. Would seem to have made sense to have had NZ tour instead of SL pre-Ashes, but apparently not.

    The sooner this plan to un-synchronise Ashes and World Cups can be executed the better.

    Also it's disappointing to see time and effort wasted on Twenty20 games when there's a ODI World Cup just around the corner, but not I suppose all that surprising. Vaguely encouraging to see that we're going to apparently have four three-day tourist fixtures, which is still inadequate in the grand scheme but far better than most schedules of recent years. Naturally, disappointing also to have The Ashes conducted within 6 weeks, but that was the same in 2009 as well.

    Yeah I think it is encouraging. By the way, the match against Australia A is a 4 day match and it really should be a really good hit out against quality opposition.

    Even better. Probably should've said three+-day fixtures.

    And of course there's hope that when the next Ashes tour arrives the four-day Australia A fixture at Bellerive will have been turned into a Sixth Test.

    3rd in the world and still not good enough to play a test series in australia. and people wonder why we play India, NZ and Bangladesh every year. everyone else seems to forgot we are a test playing nation. reckon we should send the U19 in protest, that series doesn't even warrant the a team.

    Lol the funny thing is I saw the schedule and my first thought was "oh looks like NZ is free in December, 2 match test series hopefully"
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke
