ECB Chief Executive Officer View

After ECB’s announcement, its Chief Executive Officer, Tom Harrison remarked: “We had an amazing summer of international cricket this year with some memorable performances, and we know how much enjoyment it brought to people whilst staying at home.”

“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 centerpiece, compelling white ball series for our men and women, and an Ashes Series for our Visually Impaired team. It’s an exciting prospect for England fans, and while Covid 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.”

A five-Test series against India is planned to headline the men’s international summer, following a Royal London Series against Sri Lanka and a Royal London Series and Vitality T20I Series against Pakistan.
