ECB chief executive officer Tom Harrison said: “It has been a scintillating summer of cricket and so good to see crowds backpacking 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.”
The ECB also announced that the T20 Blast Finals for 2022 will be held on Saturday, July 16, at Edgbaston, and that they are still in talks with important stakeholders on the 2022 England Women’s regular-season schedule and the format of the men’s and women’s home seasons.
