The Australian women's team are about to go into full blown preparation mode for the Commonwealth Games, and their tri-series with Ireland and Pakistan will be available to watch back at home after Fox Sports confirmed they have picked up the rights.

Australia, Pakistan and Ireland will play each other twice during the series, giving Australia four vital preparation games ahead of next month's Commonwealth Games.

Starting on Sunday morning (AEST), Australia will play Pakistan and Ireland on back-to-back days, before having a couple of days off ahead of playing Ireland again on Friday morning (AEST), and then Pakistan on Sunday morning (AEST) to round out the tri-series.

Foxtel will broadcast the game on Fox Cricket, with the games also to be shown on Kayo Sports.

In better news for Australian fans not keen on staying up until 4am (AEST) in the morning for the completion of each game (all games start at 1am AEST), all matches will then be available on demand through Kayo Sports or the Foxtel App.

Cricket Ireland will live stream the remaining Ireland vs Pakistan games, with Foxtel not picking up the rights to those two games.

Australia have been grouped alongside India, Pakistan and Barbados at the eight-team Commonwealth Games tournament, with England, New Zealand, South Africa and Sri Lanka in the other group.
