The ICC Champions Trophy 2013 will be held in England with the matches scheduled to be held at Cardiff, Edgbaston and The Oval.

Edgbaston will host the final of competition with the other two venues each hosting a semi-final.

England last hosted the tournament in 2004.

ECB Chief Executive David Collier said: "The prospect of England defending the Ashes on home soil, the world's top eight teams competing in the ICC Champions Trophy, and a full programme of 50-Over and T20 International cricket will provide rich pickings for cricket fans next summer.

"Last season's international programme attracted a record aggregate attendance of more than 850,000 spectators and we would urge all fans to purchase their international tickets early for 2013 to avoid missing out on what promises to be a memorable summer.

"Wales has earned an outstanding reputation for its ability to deliver world-class sporting events and we are delighted that Cardiff will be used as a host venue for the ICC Champions Trophy and stage a semi-final."
