Australia are an in-form cricket team right now. If they won the T20 World Cup 2021, they were excellent in testing as well. They won tournaments against England and Pakistan earlier this year. However, the focus will be on the T20 format for now. Australia will host the T20 World Cup 2022 and hence, they would like to win it. On that note, here we are looking at the Australian cricket team schedule for September 2022.

Australia’s summer began with the ODI series against Zimbabwe. The team fielded an almost complete squad. The main idea was to develop the practice of the game among players before the T20 World Cup. Australia would play their last match of the Zimbabwe ODI series on September 2.
Next, neighbors New Zealand will arrive in Australia for a three-game ODI series. After this assignment, the Australians would travel to India for a three-match T20I competition. This series will give an idea of where Australia is currently in preparation for the 2022 T20 World Cup.
Here is Australia’s schedule for September:
- Australia vs Zimbabwe 3rd ODI – September 2
- Australia vs New Zealand 1st ODI – September 6
- Australia vs New Zealand 2nd ODI – September 8
- Australia vs New Zealand 3rd ODI – September 11
- Australia vs India 1st T20I – September 20
- Australia vs India 2nd T20I – September 23
- Australia vs India 3rd T20I – September 25
The defending champions would like to win the trophy on home soil
In 2021, few expected Australia to win the T20 World Cup. However, they played as a team and managed to bring home the trophy.
That said, at home defending the trophy will be a difficult task. All teams are preparing well and Australia will be under pressure to defend the crown in front of their home fans. However, Australia are a serial winner of the trophy and it will come as no surprise if they claim the trophy again.
