The Test series begins on August 1 at Edgbaston. The remaining four Tests will be played at Lord’s, Trent Bridge, Ageas Bowl and The Oval. Speaking about the India series, ECB Chief Executive Officer Tom Harrison said: “A five-Test series against India is at the heart of next summer’s international programme.”
“This is always a much-anticipated contest which attracts a huge following across the globe for the five-day game. “Test match cricket has a strong, consistent and passionate following across England and Wales and the seven summer Tests, starting with the Pakistan matches, are sure to attract good crowds.
“Alongside these, England’s white-ball contests against India, Australia and Scotland will give a fascinating guide to form ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup, to be staged here in 2019,” he added.
