Tickets are selling fast for this year's Ashes cricket series against England with some Test days already sold out, Cricket Australia said on Friday.

Tickets for the opening three days of the third Test at Perth's WACA Ground have sold out while the fifth Sydney Test has sold out on day one and has very few seats remaining for days two and three, CA said.

Brisbane's Gabba, Adelaide Oval and Melbourne Cricket Ground have also sold steadily, but tickets still remain for all days, it said.

"There was ticket sales hysteria around the last 2006-07 Ashes series here and while we haven't quite reached those levels, ticket sales remain strong," Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland said in a statement.

"In all, there are very few tickets remaining for the opening one or two days of play across all Ashes Tests and I certainly encourage cricket fans to get in quickly or they may be disappointed."

The opening Test at the Gabba gets underway on November 25 followed by Tests in Adelaide (December 3-7), Perth (December 16-20), Melbourne (December 26-30) and Sydney (January 3-7).

England hold the Ashes after winning the last year's series 2-1 at home.
