London [UK], Aug 21 (ANI): England Cricket Board on Wednesday announced 2020 international schedule for the men's team who will play six matches of each format with four different international teams.
The World Cup 2019-winners will start their international summer in June when they will host West Indies for a three-match Test series.
After that, the English side will compete against their Ashes rivals, Australia, for a three-match IT20 and three-match ODI series in July.
Later in the month, England will fight it out in three-match Test and three-match IT20 series against Pakistan before locking horns with Ireland for a three-match ODI series in September.
All the Test matches in the schedule will be a part of the ICC World Test Championship.
ECB Chief Executive Officer Tom Harrison, while announcing the schedule, said that World Test Championship will add significance and context to the Test Series.
"The ICC World Test Championship will add significance and context to the Test Series against West Indies and Pakistan. Where every Test matters, there will be lots of points to play for as England continue their efforts to reach the inaugural World Test Championship final in June 2021," ECB's official website quoted Harrison as saying.
"Alongside the red ball matches, England's ODI contests against Australia and Ireland will see the World Champions return to home soil with big crowds expected at all venues," he added.
