The annual Prime Minister's XI tour match has been switched from January to December 2 and will be played against West Indies at Manuka Oval in Canberra. Cricket Australia said scheduling changes forced the rearrangement of the fixture, which is a tradition dating back to Sir Robert Menzies and was re-introduced by Bob Hawke in the 1980s.

West Indies will play their first game of the three-Test tour against Queensland in Brisbane, starting on October 27, before the first Test at the Gabba on November 3. The second Test begins at Hobart on November 17 before the series finishes at Adelaide.

Tickets for the tour match at Canberra will be available through ACT Cricket from October 4. Mark Vergano, the ACT Cricket chief executive, said the game would give local residents an opportunity to see international stars in action.
