The first Test will be played at Lord’s from June 2-6, while the second match will be played at Edgbaston between June 10 and 14. 

ECB Chief Executive Officer, Tom Harrison, said: “The prospect of our England Men’s team taking on the world’s two top-ranked Test nations in New Zealand and India this summer is something for us all to savour,” according to ECB.co.uk.

At the conclusion of the Tests, Sri Lanka will visit England for a limited-overs series. Their tour will begin with a three-match T20 International (T20I) series, which will be played on June 23, 24 (Both in Cardiff), followed by the final match at the Ageas Bowl on June 26.
