The Zimbabwe cricket team toured Australia in August and September 2022 to play three One Day International (ODI) matches.[1] The ODI series formed part of the inaugural 2020–2023 ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.[2][3][4] Zimbabwe last toured Australia in the 2003–04 cricket season to play two Test matches and an ODI tri-series along with India.[5] In May 2022, Cricket Australia confirmed the fixtures for the tour,[6] with all the matches taking place at the Riverway Stadium in Townsville.[7]


Originally, the fixtures were scheduled to be played in June 2020, but they were moved to early August 2020 by Cricket Australia.[8] The revised dates clashed with the inaugural season of The Hundred in England, with several Australian cricketers initially expected to take part in the tournament.[9] However, The Hundred was postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[10] The pandemic also put Zimbabwe's tour to Australia in doubt,[11] but on 28 May 2020, Cricket Australia confirmed the fixtures for the series.[12][13] The series was put into further doubt in June, after Cricket Australia announced several cost-saving measures.[14] On 20 June 2020, Cricket Australia's interim chief executive officer, Nick Hockley, said that getting clarity on the status of the tour was on his priority list.[15] However, on 30 June 2020, the tour was postponed due to the pandemic.[16][17]

In February 2022, Zimbabwe Cricket were looking at the possibility of playing the matches later that year,[18] with the addition of three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches or a Test match.[19]


 Australia[20]  Zimbabwe[21]

Zimbabwe Cricket also named Tanaka Chivanga and John Masara as reserves.[21] Josh Inglis was added to Australia's squad after the first ODI in place of Mitchell Marsh.[22]
