Following an extraordinary summer of Ashes cricket this year, England have announced next summer’s home fixtures including two test series’ against West Indies and Sri Lanka, alongside England’s white ball clashes with Pakistan and Australia either side of the T20 World Cup.
All eyes next year will be on the T20 World Cup taking place in June. After England take on New Zealand in a thrilling white ball series to conclude this summer’s action, Jos Buttler’s side will kickstart an incredible summer of home cricket in 2024 with four T20s against Pakistan in May.
Last year England narrowly beat Pakistan in an intense seven-match away T20 series. Following that, England’s white ball side went to T20 World Cup 2022 in the form they required to put together a formidable run to the final where they met Abar Azam’s men once again. On that occasion it was England who came out on top with the help of an inspired innings from Ben Stokes to take the game away from Pakistan and deliver England their first T20 title for 12 years.
Off the back of that historic win, next May’s four match series will provide a mouth-watering rematch between the two teams and offer the perfect preparation for England before they travel to the Caribbean and United States to defend their title.
Once they’ve returned Ben Stokes’ red ball side will then be back to entertain crowds in their own unique fashion when they begin their first three-match test series of the summer at Lord’s on 10th July against the West Indies.
The two nations will bring a lot of recent history into the series. The last time they met England were thoroughly beaten by 10 wickets in Granada – sparking major changes in the English leadership team at the time.
That followed the last red ball series on home soil between the two sides in 2020 which was played out with the absence of fans as England edged a close series 2-1, so it will be fantastic to see the two nations go head-to-head in front of a packed-out crowd at Lord’s in 2024.
Sri Lanka will then be England’s next test opponents beginning on August 21st. England hold an impressive record against Sri Lanka – unbeaten in series’ against them since 2014 – and will look to carry on that proud run this summer during a three test match series at hosted Old Trafford, Lord’s and The Kia Oval.
To round off the summer the men will face then face their old foes Australia once again in a 3-match IT20 series and 5-match ODI series. The Ashes series this summer has captured the attention of the nation with its iconic rivalry and contrasting styles, and the likes of Jonny Bairstow and Pat Cummins will be clashing once again next September.
With the conclusion of The Ashes followed by the ODI World Cup taking place in India this September and a packed schedule of home cricket in 2024, the next 12 months has the all the makings to be an unmissable year of cricket.
