Chappell-Hadlee series dates named

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 19/04/2016

Cricket Australia has confirmed the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy series against New Zealand will be played in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne later this year.

The three-match, one-day series will be held between Australia's Test series against South Africa and Pakistan.

It's the first time the trophy will be contested in Australia since 2008-09, with the series shelved between the 2015 World Cups.

However, there is now a commitment between the two nations to stage six ODI series over a four-year-period, CA says.

The matches will be played in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne on December 4, 6 and 9.

The two sides will play a return leg in New Zealand in early 2017.

New Zealand are the current holders of the trophy after winning the three-match series at home 2-1 earlier this year.
