Venues revealed for 2023 Ashes series

Venues revealed for 2023 Ashes series

The England and Wales Cricket Board confirmed the venues for major matches between 2020 and 2024 on Wednesday.

Durham County Cricket Club have missed out on selection as a host venue for the new regional English T20 competition, which begins in 2020.

The ECB awarded the 2023 Ashes Tests between England and Australia to the same five grounds as the 2019 series.

However, Trent Bridge's absence means Australia can avoid reliving the memories of when they were skittled for 60 at the venue in 2015 as Stuart Broad took 8-15.

The thrashing saw Australia forfeit the Ashes, with captain Michael Clarke announcing his retirement following the game.

An Australian team last played at Headingley in 2009, when Ricky Ponting's team romped to an innings victory. England is at $3 to bounce back from their 4-0 thrashing this summer, while a drawn series is paying $5.50. Purely on cricket reasons ...

"Trent Bridge has become an outstanding domestic venue for T20 cricket - you only have to look at the size of the crowds and the excitement it brings to the city", said Pursehouse. The Ageas Bowl will not host any Tests at all in the 2020-24 period. "However, given the reduction to six matches per year, it was a hugely competitive bid process for Test cricket, so we are very happy that we have secured four in the five-year period. Having hosted terrific matches here in 2013 and 2015, it would have been the icing on the cake".

Arthur said that the allocation of three Tests, a one-day worldwide and six T20 internationals during the five-year cycle, along with Emerald Headingley being named as one of eight host venues for the new T20 franchise tournament starting in 2020, "completely underpins and more" the club's financial forecasts for the next six years, with the Ashes Test alone worth up to £5m.

Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, London, Manchester, Nottingham and Southampton will all have sides, with London teams based at both Lord's and The Oval.
