Moreover, it stated that the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in Melbourne will continue to host the traditional Boxing Day Test with Sydney hosting the final, New Year Test. 

These updates come after the board announced the complete details of the Men’s and Women’s Big Bash League. However, with the schedule yet to be released for the Border Gavaskar Trophy, a CA spokesperson was quoted as saying by The Sydney Morning Herald, “the schedule is yet to be finalised”.
