Eng play fewer ODIs after next Ashes tour



England will play only five one-day internationals and three Twenty20s against Australia after the Ashes series Down Under at the end of the year, Cricket Australia said on Thursday.

England played seven one-day internationals and two Twenty20s in 2010-11 after the last Ashes series in Australia, which they won 3-1 to retain the urn.

Their 2013-14 tour begins with a three-day match against a Western Australia XI on October 31 and concludes three months later with the third Twenty20 at the 82 500-seater Olympic Stadium in Sydney on February 2.

In between, the tourists will play the five Ashes tests, three other tour matches, one-dayers in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth and the first two Twenty20 clashes in Hobart and Melbourne.

The two teams will be extremely familiar with each other by then as Australia play five Ashes tests, five one-dayers and two Twenty20s in England from July to September as well as a Champions Trophy group match in Birmingham on June 8.
