“Two Tests and five T20 internationals between India and England will be played in Ahmedabad. The third and fourth Tests will be played in Ahmedabad.

The day-night Test will be played from February 24,” Shah told reporters at the inauguration of the Gujarat Cricket Association’s indoor cricket academy in Ahmedabad on Thursday.

“The much-awaited marquee series will kickstart with a 4-match Test series for Anthony de Mello Trophy, the first of which will be played in Chennai from the 5th of February. Chennai will also host the second Test while the newly built Sardar Patel Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad will host the remaining two Test matches,” it said.

“The last leg of the tour will feature ODIs and all three matches will be held in Pune. The BCCI has restricted the tour to just three venues keeping in mind the current pandemic situation prevailing in the country,” it added.
