Also thinking about going. Most interested in Melbourne and Sydney, but like the idea of being home at Christmas. Hmm.

T20 tri series will be real fun

Schedule released just now to include a day/night test.

Not sure how i feel about the Ashes being played with a day/night fixture...

I'm a big fan of progression with cricket, but there is something about the Ashes that i feel means they should remain day only games...

First Test Australia v England, Gabba -  23-27 November 2017

That's almost a year away. I don't see Cook at the helm for this Test. England has an opportunity to induct new leadership/captain.

Disappointed that they've stuck in a day/night Test in such an iconic series.

well as i appear to be the only one who likes this idea im getting ready for abuse,

I like the idea of day/night test cricket, in australia, good weather huge crowds and a bit of a party atmosphere.

I also agree its good to try and develop test match cricket to save it and to have it in such a high profile test is good!

I went to the county champion game in abu dhabi 2013 (waarwickshire) and it was really good actually as a spectator the ball as easy to pick up and seemed to just enough to trouble the batsmen but not too much to make it overly bowler friendly and so if we can get similar things in test cricket then im all for it!!

You're not on your own @alexhilly1492 - I think it's the perfect series to include a day/night test. Just adds to the spectacle IMO!

well past my peak

I've just seen photos of the new stadium at Perth, it looks god awful! It's just another typical Aussie concrete bowl much like the Gabba and MCG, it has no character or history like what the WACA has. It's sad to see old iconic grounds being cast aside in favour of more seats, because as we all know more seats means more money. :(

Stokes, Moeen, Root, Rashid, Bairstow, Woakes and Buttler could be in Australia from November to February.

Just think that through and what that would do to a player.

Ask them where they'd rather be between Australia/New Zealand and the subcontinent...

Pretty sure there's two tests and 3 ODIs in New Zealand after all this

It doesn't have the nostalgia of the WACA but I think it's good for the fans
