Jump to navigation Jump to search

The 2006–07 Australian cricket season is made up of three domestic competitions for the men; the first-class Pura Cup, the List A Ford Ranger One Day Cup and the Twenty20 competition KFC Twenty20 Big Bash. The women compete in the Women's National Cricket League, although Tasmania does not have a first-class women's team. The season started on 11 October 2006 with a domestic Ford Ranger One Day Cup match between Queensland and Tasmania, and culminated with the World Cup Final between Australia and Sri Lanka on 28 April 2007.

The international season started with the Champions Trophy in October and November, followed by the 5-Test match Ashes series and a single Twenty20 match against England until early January. The English tour was followed by the 2006–07 Commonwealth Bank Series, an ODI triangular series against England and New Zealand which lasted until mid February. Later in the summer, Australia toured New Zealand, playing for the 2006–07 Chappell–Hadlee Trophy, and competed in the World Cup in March and April.

Ashes[edit]

The 2006–07 cricket series between Australia and England for the Ashes was played in Australia between 23 November 2006 and 5 January 2007. The five Test matches were at Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney. Australia won the series 5–0, the first whitewash victory in 86 years, and regained the ashes that were held by England after its win in 2005. Australia also won the Twenty20 International.

Commonwealth Bank Series[edit]

Australia was a clear winner in the round robin stage, with 7 wins and only 1 loss, but lost against England in the best-of-3 series final.

Chappell–Hadlee Trophy[edit]

3 ODI matches between Australia and New Zealand to be held in New Zealand.

World Cup[edit]

The premier One Day International tournament was held in the West Indies from 13 March to 28 April. Australia topped their group in the competition, defeating Scotland, the Netherlands and South Africa along the way. They remained undefeated throughout the Super 8 stage of the competition and again topped the group table. They defeated South Africa in the semi-final and went on to complete an unbeaten tournament with victory over Sri Lanka in a rain-affected final.
