South Africa are set to play their first Test
at the Gabba in 49 years to open Australia's upcoming summer of
international cricket.

Australia have two three-Test series scheduled this summer with the arrival of South Africa followed by the visit of Sri Lanka.

Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland is expecting plenty of closely fought contests.
"Over the last 12 to 24 months we've seen
some young and exciting talent injected into the Australian men's team
and those changes are starting to reap the rewards of the hard work led
by Michael Clarke and Mickey Arthur," Sutherland said.

"The Australian men's team has a chance to test themselves early in
the summer against a very strong South African side and the series is a
great way to start the program.

"We're also fortunate to have Sri Lanka back again. They play a very
entertaining and attacking style of cricket and as we saw last year have
a passionate and vocal fan base around Australia."
Michael Clarke's side will host South Africa in Brisbane (starting November 9), Adelaide (Nov 22) and Perth (Nov 30).

The first Test against Sri Lanka will be held in Hobart (Dec 14),
followed by the traditional matches in Melbourne (Dec 26) and Sydney
(Jan 03).

Australia and Sri Lanka will follow their Test series with five
one-day internationals (ODI) in 12 days starting at the MCG on January
11, before two Twenty20 internationals (T20I) on January 26 and 28.
