The tour schedule also sees 50-over world champions India, who beat England by five runs in the Champions Trophy final at Edgbaston in June, involved in five one-day internationals and a one-day international.

Three of the five Tests will be played at southern venues, Lord’s and The Oval in London plus Southampton’s Rose Bowl although, as the latter is a relatively new international ground, the Test there is still subject to confirmation following an ECB inspection visit.

England beat India 2-1 in India in a Test series last year, before sharing a two-match T20 series and then losing a five-match one-day campaign 3-2. India’s England tour which is scheduled to be played from July 9 to September 7.
