"From the beginning of the major match bid process we wanted to position ourselves as the "white-ball venue of choice" and by hosting a team in the new T20 competition and eight "white ball" internationals from 2020 to 2024 we achieved this goal".

Yorkshire and Lancashire are the major beneficiaries after the European Central Bank announced the five Test venues for the visit of Australia in the 2023 Ashes series on Wednesday.

Gloucestershire, Durham, Glamorgan and Hampshire will all host England one-day internationals at their grounds throughout this period, with the latter two also set to stage T20 internationals.

"This award of matches is also recognition of the tremendous effort that all of our staff have made over recent years to make sure that every visitor to Edgbaston Stadium receives a warm and friendly welcome, which has consistently been reflected in our customer experience scores".

Hampshire say they are disappointed to have missed out on being allocated any Test matches between 2020 and 2024 but are looking forward to hosting a new T20 franchise.

Old Trafford has been named as one of the eight host venues for the new city T20 competition, which will rival the likes of the Indian Premier League and Australian Big Bash and will start in the summer of 2020.

"Emirates Old Trafford has been a Test venue for over 130 years and we are proud of our rich heritage and history in hosting global fixtures". We believe firmly that Lord's is the ground at which cricketers throughout the world want to play and where fans of the game wish to watch.

"Birmingham has a very young and diverse population so to have the opportunity to host a team in this exciting new competition is a fantastic opportunity to build on this work and to attract even more youngsters to cricket".
