India will commence their two-month long tour to England next year with the three-match Twenty20 series and will cap it off with five Tests, the England and Wales Cricket Board announced.

The two teams will play three Twenty20 Internationals, starting July 3 at Old Trafford, followed by three One-day Internationals and then the five Tests at the Edgbaston, the Lord's, Trent Bridge, the Rose Bowl and The Oval. 

"A five-Test series against India is at the heart of next summer's international programme. This is always a much-anticipated contest which attracts a huge following across the globe for the five-day game," ECB chief executive officer Tom Harrison said in a press release. 

England's summer will start in May with two Test matches against Pakistan at Lord's and Headingley, before they play a one-off one-day game against Scotland in Edinburgh, followed by five One-day Internationals and a T20 match against Australia later that month.
