The series will be played from England

The Indian cricket team will tour England next year i.e. in 2025. Lord's, known as the Mecca of cricket, the iconic Oval, the fast bowling-friendly Headingley are among the five venues where matches will be played between India and England. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) made this announcement on Wednesday. ECB has announced its men's and women's team domestic calendars for the 7-year cycle between 2025-2031. According to the Future Tours Program (FTP) of the International Cricket Council (ICC), India is set to tour England for five Tests in June-2025.

Matches will be held on 5 grounds

In a statement issued by the ECB, it has been said that these matches for the Pataudi Trophy will be played at Lord's, The Oval (both in London), Edgbaston (Birmingham), Headingley (Leeds) and Old Trafford (Manchester). In the 2029 series, Headingley will be replaced by Southampton's Rose Bowl while the remaining four venues will remain Lord's, The Oval, Edgbaston and Old Trafford. India had lost the final of the World Test Championship (WTC Final-2021) against New Zealand two years ago in Southampton itself.

England team will also come to India

Apart from Australia, India is the only team against whom England plays a series of five Test matches both at home and abroad. England's next tour of India will be in January 2024, where five Test matches will be played. These matches will be played for the Anthony Di Mello Trophy. India and England are playing five matches in a Test series since 2014. The exception to this was England's 2020-21 tour of India. Then one Test was reduced to accommodate the limited overs series. This series had to be postponed due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. India last won a Test series abroad in 2007 against England.
