Before Australia embark on their ICC Women’s World T20 campaign in West Indies they will play T20 Internationals against New Zealand in October with further ODI matches in February.

Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide will host its first international match ahead of Women’s World T20 in 2020 while the WACA Ground and Junction Oval round out venues to mirror WT20 2020 venues.

“It’s a summer which will contain plenty of high-quality cricket, and some exciting new additions to the Australian cricket calendar," Cricket Australia Chief Executive Officer James Sutherland said.

"Overall, there are more International matches being played across more locations around the country than in previous years, and we believe this program has something for all cricket fans," he said. 

Australia is currently ranked number one in the world after a successful Tour of India and will be looking to keep this performance up.

The Southern Stars matches will be broadcast on Seven and Fox Sports after Cricket Australia's new deal with the Governor-General’s XI to the broadcast on Fox Sports for the first time.
