English Test Cricket Season

21.05.15 - 08.09.15

English cricket returns to home soil in May. There's another action-packed season this year, with New Zealand the first to arrive in May, for a two-test series. This is followed by 3 one-day internationals which will act as excellent preparations for both teams in the build-up to the ICC Champions Trophy which takes place throughout June.

The NatWest Twenty20 International at the Emirates ground at Old Trafford concludes New Zealand's tour of England before the Australians arrive for the hotly-anticipated Ashes series. With competition to be the number one test side intense, this is sure to be an exciting and compelling Test series, for England, Australia and neutral fans alike.
