The England Cricket Board (ECB) on Tuesday announced the home schedule for their men’s and women’s teams as per which the England eves will host Pakistan and New Zealand in 2024, while the men’s will face Pakistan, Australia, Sri Lanka and West Indies.
The 2024 home international season will begin with England women and England men hosting Pakistan in concurrent white-ball series.
The Test matches in the summer will kick-off with two home series against West Indies (July 10- 30) and Sri Lanka (August 21- September 10) following their return from the T20 World Cup.
Both the series comprise three Tests, with Lord’s, Trent Bridge, The Oval, Manchester and Edgbaston being the host venues.
Australia will then return to England for a white-ball series in September, playing three T20Is (September 11- 15) and five ODIs (September 19- 29).
Meanwhile, the England eves will play at a selection of high-capacity venues next summer, when they will also host New Zealand in a three-match women’s ODI series from June 26–July 3 and a five-match IT20 Series from July 6-17.
“After attracting record ticket sales this summer it is fitting that the England women’s team will open the international season next year at an iconic venue such as Edgbaston. Next summer’s schedule will see England women play at more venues and allow more people to see their heroes in action as we look to maintain the growth the women’s game deserves,” said Richard Gould, ECB Chief Executive Officer.
