England tour of India Full Schedule: A big news has come for the cricket lovers as the game is all set to return to India in February when India will be hosting England. India is scheduled to play four Tests, five T20Is, and three ODIs against England. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has already announced the schedule for England’s tour of India, which will begin with a four-match Test series from Feb 5, 2021. The third match of the upcoming (IND vs ENG Series) will be the Pink-ball (D/N) match, which will be hosted in Ahmedabad.
The upcoming much-awaited series will begin with a four-match Test series for the Anthony de Mello Trophy, the first of which will be played in Chennai from Feb 5. However, Kohli and Co should keep in mind that when the English side toured India last time, the home team had been beaten in all formats by the visitors. It will be a good chance for both teams to get used to the seeming conditions in India, especially with the ICC T20 World Cup set to take place in India this year.
Keeping the current quarantine situation in mind, the matches will be played at three venues. The first two Tests will be played in Chennai. Ahmedabad will host the last two Tests and all the five T20Is, and Pune will host the three ODIs.
