The English cricket team will face Australia, Pakistan, and England in the upcoming summer of 2018 after the ECB confirmed the schedule to the summer. England will start the season with a couple of Tests against Pakistan, an opposition to which they drew 2-2 in a 4 match Test series last year. From there on England will head to limited overs cricket which starts off with a tour to Edinburgh to face Scotland.

The limited overs side will then play 5 ODI’s and a solitary T20I against Australia before continuing the limited overs leg with the arrival of India for a series. India and England will compete in 3 ODI’s and 3 T20I’s. The international cricketing calendar will conclude with a 5 match Test series against India starting at Edgbaston.

“A five-Test series against India is at the heart of next summer’s international programme,” said ECB Chief Executive Officer Tom Harrison. “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.

“We are pleased to have a very loyal following for all three formats of the game and we expect to attract great crowds across the summer. The universal on-sale date was a great success for the venues and fans last year and we will repeat that again this year. What also stays the same is that we would urge fans to apply early and plan for a big summer of cricket.”
