Lords, Oval, Headingley among five centers for Indian tests during the 2025 tour of England

Rose Bowl in Southampton, where India lost the first World Cup Test final to New Zealand two years ago, will replace Headingley as the series venue in 2029, while the other four venues-Lords, Oval, Edgbaston and Old Trafford-will remain the same.

By announcing the arrangements for the next seven years, we are also giving the venues long-term certainty so they can steadily invest in stadium improvements and fan experience, said Richard Gould, ECB executive director.

India are the only side other than Australia against whom England play five Tests in the series, both home and away.

England’s next tour of India will be in January 2024 and will consist of five Tests to be played for the Anthony de Mello Trophy.

India and England have each played five matches in the Test series since 2014, with the exception of England’s tour to India in 2020-21, when one Test was shortened for the Limited-over series, which was postponed because of the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

The last time India won an away Test series against England was about 16 years ago in 2007.
