The England national cricket team toured Australia from November 1979 to February 1980 and played a three-match Test series against the Australia national cricket team. Australia won the Test series 3–0. England were captained by Mike Brearley; Australia by Greg Chappell. In addition, the teams played in a triangular Limited Overs International (LOI) tournament with the West Indies cricket team. The West Indies won this tournament, defeating England in the final.[1]

As part of the settlement between World Series Cricket and the Australian board, this series was hastily arranged along with another involving Australia and the West Indies. The two series are seen by many as semi-official only, for example, The Ashes were not at stake.
