India’s tour of England, which includes a one-off Test match, was confirmed on Tuesday as the England and Wales Cricket Board announced their summer schedule for women’s cricket.
India will play a multi-format series across June and July, which will kickstart England’s home season, which also includes a series against New Zealand. Apart from the Test at Bristol – India’s first in seven years – there will be three One-day Internationals and three Twenty20 Internationals.
The two international series will sit either side of The Hundred, England’s new 100-ball tournament.
Last month, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, the Board of Control for Cricket in India secretary Jay Shah had confirmed that India will return to the Test arena for the first time since 2014.
Tom Harrison, ECB Chief Executive Officer, said: “We’re really looking forward to a busy summer in what is a huge year for our England Women’s team, and we’re very excited about hosting India and New Zealand.”
