January 25 (Reuters) – England will host New Zealand in a series of two tests in June to kick off their summer at home, the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said on Monday.
The matches will take place at Lord’s June 2-6 and Edgbaston June 10-14.
England will next face Sri Lanka in a three-match Twenty20 international series starting June 23, which precedes the one-day three-match international series against the same opposition.
England’s summer schedule also includes one-day international and T20 series with Pakistan and a five-game test series against India.
“The prospect of seeing our England men’s team take on the world‘s two top-ranked test nations in New Zealand and India this summer is something for all of us to savor,” said ECB CEO Tom. Harrison.
The visually impaired England team are also expected to welcome Australia in an Ashes series that remains subject to COVID-19 assessments, the ECB has said.
