Cricket: England to begin 2022 home summer with New Zealand test series

England will host New Zealand in a three-test series in June to start their home summer schedule, the England & Wales Cricket Board said on Wednesday.

The series against the World Test Championship (WTC) winners will begin at Lord's on June 2, before matches at Trent Bridge (June 10-14) and Headingley (June 23-27).

England will then play India in a three-match Twenty20 series starting July 1, before a three-match one-day international (ODI) series against the same opposition.

The white-ball matches continue with ODI and T20 series against South Africa later in July, before a three-test series against the Proteas in August and September concludes England's summer.

"It has been a scintillating summer of cricket and so good to see crowds back packing out venues later this summer," ECB chief executive Tom Harrison said in a statement.

"For next summer, I am pleased to be able to confirm three high-quality men's international touring teams for 2022."

England are currently playing India in a five-test series, which the visitors lead 2-1. The final test will begin on Friday at Old Trafford.
