International cricket in 2017–18

The 2017–18 international cricket season is from September 2017 to March 2018.[1][2] Currently, 30 Test matches, 75 One-day Internationals (ODIs), and 41 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) are scheduled to be played during this period. The season started with India leading the Test cricket rankings, South Africa leading the ODI rankings, New Zealand leading the Twenty20 rankings, and England women leading the Women's rankings.

The season started with Australia's tour of India, which consisted of 5 ODIs and 3 T20Is. After this, 14 more bilateral series among the Full Member nations are currently scheduled for the remainder of the season. The most notable of these series is the 70th ion of The Ashes, which was held in Australia from November 2017 to January 2018. 20 T20Is were scheduled across these bilateral series, which is double the amount of T20Is scheduled in the 2017 season.

The start of this season marks an important point in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup qualification process. The top 8 teams in the ICC ODI Championship at the start of this season gain direct qualification for the World Cup. Those ranked in the bottom four will compete in the 2018 Cricket World Cup Qualifier, which will be held in Zimbabwe, and will be joined by the top four teams in the World Cricket League Championship and the top two teams from World Cricket League Division Two. This season also witnessed the conclusion of the World Cricket League Championship, with matches in rounds 6 and 7 of the World Cricket League Championship taking place during this season. At the conclusion of the tournament, the top four teams qualified for the World Cup Qualifier with the remaining teams going to World Cricket League Division Two for a final chance to qualify for the World Cup Qualifier.
