The bank has been involved with Cricket Australia for 26 years and will continue its support of the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars women’s team, the Australian Country Cricket Championships, the Imparja Cup and grassroots cricket throughout Australia.

Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland said: “Commonwealth Bank is Cricket Australia’s longest-standing sponsor and we are absolutely delighted that this rare opportunity has come up to have them come on board as our Test cricket sponsor.

“We have had a wonderful relationship for over 26 years with the Commonwealth Bank and they have partnered with us on ODIs for the past seven seasons. Their support extends right across the sport and deep into cricket.”

Commonwealth Bank CEO, Ian Narev said: “We look forward to being involved with a format of the game which has such a long and proud history. The forthcoming back-to-back Ashes Series will be a particularly exciting time. I wish Michael Clarke, Jodie Fields and their teams every success for their upcoming UK tours and then the home Ashes.”
