England and Wales Cricket Board announces 2023 Ashes venues

The ECB has announced that Edgbaston and Trent Bridge will host a total of 62 major cricket finals between 2020 and 2024.

Edgbaston will continue to host the T20 Blast final - which will remain intact alongside the new city-based T20 competition - while Trent Bridge will host the final of the one-day tournament ahead of Lord's.

That cycle includes an Ashes Test in 2023, while the club has also been chosen as a host venue for the new, eight-team T20 competition that starts in 2020.

"We are absolutely delighted with today's outcome and hopefully it will be the catalyst for cricket to grow in Wales", said Glamorgan Chief Executive, Hugh Morris.

Some win, some lose and, with the confirmation of the venues for global cricket for a five-year period between 2020-24, it is the big, traditional grounds that are the winners.

In a raft of announcements detailing England's domestic and worldwide schedule between 2020 and 2024, plans for the new T20 competition were also revealed.

"Emirates Old Trafford has been a Test venue for over 130 years and we are proud of our rich heritage and history in hosting worldwide fixtures".

"Aside from the obvious appeal of global cricket, the new T20 competition will be a real chance for our community to engage with MCC and Lord's, giving even greater opportunities to those who live and work locally to experience what the Home of Cricket has to offer".

Cllr Ian Ward, Leader of Birmingham City Council, said: "We're very proud of Edgbaston for continuing to bring the biggest matches in cricket to our great sporting city, and for the work that the team has done in transforming the ground into one of the finest cricket venues in the world. We know that the club has made huge strides in attracting more people to its T20 games, particularly families, and we look forward to following the development of this new competition in the city and across the region".
