Perth - The new Perth Stadium will host Australia's fifth one-day international against England in January, Cricket Australia said on Monday. 

The Western Australia state government has confirmed the new stadium will be ready to host the ODI on January 28. 

"For cricket to host the first major sporting event at Perth Stadium is a huge honour for our sport," CA CEO James Sutherland said.

The third Ashes Test between Australia and England will be staged at the WACA Ground in Perth on December 14-18.
