The England and Wales Cricket Board has confirmed that India will play five-match Test series in England next year. Alongside this, they announced a ‘provisional’ schedule for a ‘full summer of international cricket’ as well. However, not only the five-match Test series against India but England will also host Sri Lanka and Pakistan in June and July 2021 as ECB has decided to host international series across men’s, women’s and disability cricket as well.
The first Test between England and India will take place in Trent Bridge (Nottingham) from August 4, later it will shift to Lord’s (London), Headingley (Leeds), The Oval (London) and the final Test will be played in Old Trafford (Manchester) from September 10.

“We had an amazing summer of international cricket this year with some memorable performances, and we know how much enjoyment it brought to people whilst staying at home,” ECB Chief Executive Officer, Tom Harrison, shared.
“Next year we’ve got another big international programme to look forward to, with the thrill of a five-Test series against India as the centrepiece, compelling white ball series for our men and women, and an Ashes Series for our Visually Impaired team. It’s an exciting prospect for England fans, and while Covid means there’s still a great deal of uncertainty, we really hope to be able to welcome fans back into the grounds safely next year to bring that unique atmosphere to stadia across the country,” he further added.
