England will play three Twenty20s and three one-day internationals against Australia next month.

The matches, due to be played in July, were postponed as part of the restructured schedule because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The T20s will be at Southampton's Ageas Bowl on 4, 6 and 8 September, with the second live on BBC TV

Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester will stage the ODIs on 11, 13 and 16 September.

England play T20s against Pakistan at Old Trafford on 28 and 30 August and 1 September.

England's 50-over team, who won the World Cup last year, beat Ireland 2-1 in an ODI series at Southampton that finished earlier this month.

"The rivalry between England and Australia is the pinnacle of sporting competition," said England and Wales chief executive Tom Harrison.

"These will be thrilling contests and a perfect way to culminate the men's international season in this extraordinary summer."

Australia will leave Perth on 23 August and travel to Derby for four inter-squad matches.

All-rounder Glenn Maxwell has been named in the 21-man squad after recovering from an elbow injury.

Wicketkeeper Josh Philippe, left-arm pace bowler Daniel Sams and seamer Riley Meredith have also been included.

"It's vital for cricket that we do everything we can to keep the game going in these tough times," said Australia head coach Justin Langer.

Assistant coach Andrew McDonald will miss the tour to travel to the rearranged Indian Premier League, where he is head coach of the Rajasthan Royals.

Australia squad

Aaron Finch (capt), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Riley Meredith, Josh Philippe (wk), Daniel Sams, Kane Richardson, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Matthew Wade (wk), David Warner, Adam Zampa.

Why didn't they take lunch at 12-12.15 when they weren't playing?! They take lunch now after a 1hr 45 min delay.

This has driven me mad at games I have been to for years, a little bit of common sense and all is sorted, though I wonder if there are concerns about the length of the middle session?

There was a 25 minute segment with Atherton, Hussain and Warne today all about captaincy, absolutely brilliant to listen to. It'll be on Sky’s YouTube if you want to see it.

Broken record I know but Sky’s cricket coverage is outstanding.

I agree those segments being shown during rain breaks have been outstanding. 

For anyone not seen it, 'The Edge' is worth a watch
