India will return to England for three-match T20I and ODI series each next year, as confirmed by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on Wednesday, September 8. England will also host current World Test Championship holders New Zealand and South Africa during the three and a half-month season.
England will host New Zealand for a three-match Test series at the start of their next home season, which will be a part of the World Test Championship 2023 cycle. The first of three Tests featuring the current WTC champions will be played at Lord’s, beginning June 6, with Trent Bridge and Headingley being the other two venues.
This will be followed by a three-game T20I and ODI series each against India and South Africa respectively, before their home summer concludes with three Tests against the Proteas. That makes up for 18 international games for the hosts - six each across formats - during the season.
The ECB have also confirmed that the T20 Blast Finals Day will be staged at Edgbaston on July 16.
ECB Chief Executive Officer, Tom Harrison, said: “It has been a scintillating summer of cricket and so good to see crowds back packing out venues later this summer. For next summer, I am pleased to be able to confirm three high-quality men’s international touring teams for 2022, starting with a three-Test LV= Insurance Series against World Test champions New Zealand.
“We also look forward to India returning for two white-ball series before we host South Africa for what promises to be hard-fought series across three formats, including three LV= Insurance Test Matches.”
