The West Indies cricket team toured Australia in January and February 2024 to play two Tests, three One Day International (ODI) and three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches.[1]

The Test series, where the teams were competing for the Frank Worrell Trophy, formed part of the 2023–2025 ICC World Test Championship.[2][3][4] Australia won the first Test by 10 wickets.[5] The West Indies won the second Test by 8 runs,[6] to draw the Test series 1-1.[7] The defeat in the second Test was Australia's first ever in day/night Tests after winning on the previous 11 occasions.[8][9] It was the West Indies' first Test win in Australia since February 1997.[10] Australia won all three ODI matches, whitewashing the West Indies.[11]

The T20I series formed part of both teams' preparation for the 2024 ICC Men's T20 World Cup tournament.[12][13]
