England v Ireland

Dates for Pakistan, Ireland tours of England confirmed

England news

The England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have confirmed that England will host Ireland in a three-match ODI series in July and August this summer.

All three ODIs will be played at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. 

The series marks another step made towards cricket's gradual return to normality since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. England are due to kick off their three-Test series against West Indies this Wednesday and their Ireland series is set to commence just two days after the culmination of the final Test. 

The ECB also confirmed the exact dates of Pakistan's tour of England that will consist of three Tests and three T20Is. All nine fixtures confirmed across the two tours will be held at either the Ageas Bowl or the Emirates Old Trafford ground in Manchester.
