Indian cricket team tour England for a five-match Test series in 2021, the England and Wales Cricket Board announced on Wednesday.
India’s five tests will be played at Trent Bridge, Lord’s, Emerald Headingley, the Kia Oval and Emirates Old Trafford
England will also host Sri Lanka and Pakistan in white-ball formats in the next summer. Both the tours will occur before India’s tour.
“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,” Tom Harrison, the ECB chief executive, said.
He also added “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.”

4-8 August, 1st Test Match, Trent Bridge
