The Australian cricket team toured Britain from 22 June to 3 July 2010 where they played the Ireland and England cricket teams. The tour comprised one One Day Internationals against Ireland and five against England.

The match against Ireland was played at Clontarf Cricket Club Ground, Dublin. Ireland, an associate member of the ICC pushing for Test status, gave the top-ranked ODI team in the world a scare.[1] Limiting the Australians to 231/9 from their 50 overs, the Irish were eventually all out for 192 from 42 overs, giving Australia a 39-run victory.[2]

The tour was a lead-in to the Australian series against Pakistan in England, which included two Tests. Pakistan did not host internationals in their own country at the time due to ongoing security problems.
