Lord's Ground in London

England and India will be playing a series of five Test matches in 2021 and the venues which will host those Test matches have been announced by the England and Wales Cricket Board.

The five grounds that will host India in Test matches in 2021 are Headingley, The Oval, Lord’s, Old Trafford and Trent Bridge.

"Today's discussion and decision followed a rigorous, comprehensive and detailed process by the independent Host Venue Panel, in which they assessed a range of high quality submissions and presentations," Ian Lovett, deputy chairman of the ECB and chair of the panel, said.

"With a five-year period of international and domestic cricket in prospect, as well as our New Competition being developed, there was very strong interest in hosting these events and the overall standard of submissions was excellent,” he continued.

Venues for the Ashes series in 2023 and the new T20 tournament that will begin in 2020 were announced as well.

Ian Lovett said, "From the start of the process we had clear objectives, set a strong methodology and made best use of all relevant data and insight. To help to assess the submissions a balanced scorecard was used, with key aspects up-weighted to meet the needs of each specific set of matches.
