  • ECB announce 2023 Ashes venues with Headingley and Old Trafford set to host Australia in five-match series

"From the beginning of the major match bid process we wanted to position ourselves as the "white-ball venue of choice" and by hosting a team in the new T20 competition and eight "white ball" internationals from 2020 to 2024 we achieved this goal". With Trent Bridge becoming the home of the 50-over final and Edgbaston the home of T20 finals day, there is a move to a pleasing consistency and symmetry about the list.

The ECB has confirmed that Emirates Old Trafford will play host to an Ashes Test in 2023, three further Test Matches, five IT20s and one One-Day International and between the years 2020-24.

"I think that's where the future of cricket is", Hampshire chief executive David Mann told BBC South Today.

The Nottingham ground will, however, take over from Lord's as the venue for the domestic One-Day Cup final from 2020, the European Central Bank has confirmed.

Gloucestershire, Durham, Glamorgan and Hampshire will all host England one-day internationals at their grounds throughout this period, with the latter two also set to stage T20 internationals.

In a raft of announcements detailing England's domestic and global schedule between 2020 and 2024, plans for the new T20 competition were also revealed.

"As a club, we are determined to grow the game of cricket across all communities in the county of Lancashire and the North West as a whole, with families and supporters able to watch, at affordable prices, some of the best cricket and greatest players in Manchester over the coming years", he added.

Awarding worldwide cricket to revenue-hungry grounds is a thankless task.

"We're thrilled that it has again been awarded such a strong allocation of fixtures, in particular the right to host an Ashes Test, which will put Birmingham at the centre of the sporting world in 2023 and bring great benefits to our local economy".
