For men’s fixtures, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and India will all tour England, while for women’s ODI and T20I series, New Zealand and South Africa will visit the country.
The final of the ICC World Test Championship is now scheduled to take place in June 2021, followed by England’s home summer starting to roll with a ODI series including three matches against Sri Lanka. Matches are planned to take place at Durham, The Oval and Bristol, starting on 29 June, 2021.
That series will also feature another three-match ODI series, against Pakistan, after that there will be a three-match T20I series against the same opponents.
Five Tests against India, beginning on 4 August, 2021 at Trent Bridge, round up the men’s calendar, with the fifth Test beginning on 10 September, 2021 at Old Trafford.
The schedule for the women’s fixtures has not been announced but South Africa are hoped to play before New Zealand. Both sides will compete in ODI and T20I formats against Heather Knight.
Australia will also visit, with the England Visually Impaired side planned to compete against their Australian counterparts for the Ashes within a limited-overs series.
A ticket-balloting process has started for some of the men’s fixtures, with the ECB hoping that fans will be allowed to the grounds.
