England Men will begin their 2022 home summer with a three-match LV= Insurance Test Series against world champions New Zealand.
The schedule for next summer’s England men’s internationals has been released, 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).
New Zealand won the first-ever World Test Championship final at the Ageas Bowl in June when they defeated India.
England Men then will play all of their home white-ball matches in July.
A three-match Vitality IT20 Series against India will begin at Emirates Old Trafford on 1 July before matches at Trent Bridge (3 July) and the Ageas Bowl (6 July). A three-match Royal London Series follows with matches at Edgbaston (9 July), the Kia Oval (12 July) and Lord’s (14 July).
South Africa’s tour will begin with a three-match Royal London Series in the north of England. The series will be staged at Emirates Riverside (19 July), Emirates Old Trafford (22 July) and Emerald Headingley (24 July).
England will then meet the Proteas in a three-match Vitality IT20 Series at Bristol (27 July), Sophia Gardens (28 July) and the Ageas Bowl (31 July).
A three-match LV= Insurance Test Series against South Africa will conclude the men’s international summer. Lord’s will host the first LV= Insurance Test (17-21 August) before the series moves to Edgbaston (25-29 August) and the Kia Oval (8-12 September).
ECB Chief Executive Officer, Tom Harrison, said: “It has been a scintillating summer of cricket and so good to see crowds back packing out venues later this summer. For next summer, I am pleased to be able to confirm three high-quality men’s international touring teams for 2022, starting with a three-Test LV= Insurance Series against World Test champions New Zealand.
“We also look forward to India returning for two white-ball series before we host South Africa for what promises to be hard-fought series across three formats, including three LV= Insurance Test Matches.”
It has also been confirmed that 2022 Vitality Blast Finals Day will be staged at Edgbaston on Saturday 16 July.
The ECB remains in discussions with key stakeholders regarding the 2022 England Women’s home schedule and the structure of the men’s and women’s domestic seasons.
