The fifth match of the LV= Insurance Test Series between England Men and India Men has been rescheduled and will now take place at Edgaston in July 2022.
The match, which was due to take place last month at Emirates Old Trafford, was called off when India were unable to field a team due to fears of a further increase in the number of COVID-19 cases inside the camp.
Instead, Emirates Old Trafford will now host the second LV= Insurance Test against South Africa next summer, starting on August 25, 2022. This match was previously due to take place at Edgbaston.
Given the rescheduling of the fifth Test, the Vitality IT20 Series and Royal London Series between England and India will now start six days later than originally planned. The IT20 series will begin on 7 July at Ageas Bowl with Edgbaston and Trent Bridge hosting the 2nd and 3rd games of the series respectively on 9 and 10 July.
The Royal London One Day Series starts on 12 July at the Kia Oval. Lord’s will host the 2nd game of the series on 14 July and the series will wrap up at Emirates Old Trafford on Sunday 17 July.
For further clarity to Surrey Members and all who anticipate purchasing tickets for 2022 internationals at The Kia Oval, this does not affect the dates of our matches.
The Kia Oval Royal London ODI between England and India remains on the 12th July & the LV= Insurance Test match between England & South Africa remains between the 8th and 12th September.
