ECB announces dates and venues for India’s 2014 tour - Cricket News
India will play England in 5 Test Matches, 5 ODIs and 1 T20I.
India will play a five-match Test series in this country for the first time since 1959 with Trent Bridge, Lord’s, Rose Bowl,  Old Trafford and The Oval all hosting the Test Matches.
 
Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Middlesex will host tour matches against India who last toured England in 2011 when they were defeated four-nil in the Test Series and three-nil in the ODI Series with the T20 International series drawn 1-1.
 
ECB Chief Executive David Collier said: “This will be the first time England has hosted India in a five Test series in more than 50 years and the length of the series reflects the iconic status which contests between these two great cricketing nations now enjoy.
 
“We anticipate significant demand for tickets both for the Test series, and for the One-Day International series which will be the first encounter between these two countries in the 50-Over format since India’s triumph in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy competition at Edgbaston earlier this year.
 
“We thank the BCCI for their support and also our international venues who between them helped bring a record number of spectators – more than 850,000 - to international cricket over the course of the season when India last toured here in 2011. “
