It Is Going To Be A Thrilling Five-Match Test Series
After the pandemic year, the England squad was among the first teams to start inviting for matches even if spectators were not allowed in the stadium. As for now, they are hoping that the fans will return to see the games.
For the July T20I matches, England, together with Wales Cricket Board, has confirmed they will be hosting India for the matches against them. Although they have stated that the hosting is temporary for clear reasons, yet for those feeling they will need more cricket after the strict playing routine, there is still a lot to relish.
Other than India, England will also be hosting Sri Lanka and Pakistan for the series between June and July 2021.
June 29: England vs. Sri Lanka, the first ODI, the venue being at Emirates Riverside. June 1: England vs. Sri Lanka, the second ODI, the venue at Kia Oval. July 4: England vs. Sri Lanka, 3rd ODI, the venue at Bristol County Ground.
The schedule of Pakistan;
July 8: England vs. Pakistan, 1st ODI, Sophia Gardens. July 10: England vs. Pakistan, 2nd ODI, Lord’s. July 13: England vs. Pakistan, 3rd ODI, Edgbaston. July 16: England vs. Pakistan, 1st T20I, Trent Bridge. July 18: England vs. Pakistan 2nd T20I, Headingley. July 20: England vs. Pakistan, 3rd T20I, Old Trafford.
Schedule of India;
They will play against India on August 4-8 at Trent Bridge. The classic Lord’s Cricket Ground will have the second Test from August 12-16. The third Test will be held in Headingley from August 25-29, and the fourth at Kia Oval from September 2-6. They will then play their final match, which will be in Manchester from September 10 to 14.
For these Tests, it would be wise if Virat Kohli tries to make amends because of the horrible performance in the previous series they had with England. During the last period, they were crushed by England with 1-4 in the same kind of series.
The England team has been anticipating the game since last year.
“Next year we’ve got another big international program to look forward to, with the thrill of a five-test series against India as the center-piece, compelling white ball series for our men and women, and an Ashes series for our visually impaired team,” ECB CEO Tom Harrison said in a statement via ESPN.
“It’s an exciting prospect for England fans, and while Covid-19 means there’s still a great deal of uncertainty, we really hope to be able to welcome fans back into the grounds safely next year to bring that unique atmosphere to stadia across the country,” he said.
