The England cricket team is scheduled to tour Australia in November 2017 to play five Tests and five One Day Internationals (ODIs). The Test series will form part of the 2017–18 Ashes series.
Adelaide Oval will host the first-ever day/night Ashes Test. The series will begin, once again, at the Gabba in Brisbane, on November 23, and will conclude with back-to-back Tests at Melbourne and Sydney over the Christmas and New Year period. The fifth Test, at the SCG, begins slightly later than usual, on January 4 instead of Jan. 3. However, the WACA ground in Perth could be set to miss out of hosting the third Test, in favour of the new purpose-built Perth Stadium, subject to ongoing discussions with the Western Australia government.
The series will be broadcast in Australia by the Nine Network. As part of a five-year deal with CA which commences in 2016, BT Sport will provide television coverage of the series in the United Kingdom.
