England & Wales Cricket Board

LONDON: The England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) Wednesday released the schedule for next summer’s England men’s internationals, with India and South Africa also set to tour.

Joe Root’s Test team begin their series against the Black Caps at Lord’s on Thursday 2 June before the series heads to Trent Bridge (10-14 June) and Emerald Headingley (23-27 June).
