England have announced a jam-packed home schedule for the summer of 2023, in addition to a five-match Ashes series against Australia and a single Test match against Ireland.
A one-off Test match against Ireland will be played at Lord's from June 1 to June 4 to kick off Ben Stokes' team's summer.
The five-match Test series against Australia will then command their focus, with England attempting to reclaim the Ashes following their 0-4 loss in Australia in 2021-2022. The Test matches for the men's Ashes will be held at Edgbaston, Lord's, Headingley, Old Trafford, and The Oval between June 16 and July 31.
The men's England team will also play four 20-over games and four 50-over games in an ODI and a T20I series against New Zealand. August 30 through September 15 are the scheduled dates for the series versus New Zealand.
As England ramp up their preparations for the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2023, which will be held in India, they will also play a three-match One-Day International series against Ireland from September 20 to 26.
