England cricket schedule 2023: England will play a historic 5-day Test for the Ashes.

For the first time, the England women’s team will play an Ashes Test at home to Australia over five days. Previous women’s tests were played over four days, but the length of the match was aligned with that of the men’s team.

Trent Bridge will host the match as part of the multi-format series from June 22-26. The Ashes men’s series, which will include the traditional five Tests, will run from June 16 to July 31.

The decision, along with the fact that the Women’s Test will be played at Trent Bridge, a venue which has not hosted a women’s international match since 2000, is a continuation of the progress made by women’s sport in this country.


  • The future looks bright for English cricket as the curtain rises on a sparkling summer.
  • Stuart Broad’s place in history is secure, but he’s not done yet.

Last week they played Lord’s for the first time since 2014 and now Heather Knight’s proteges will also play three T20Is at Edgbaston, the Kia Oval and Lord’s, ahead of three ODIs at Bristol, the Ageas Bowl and in Taunton.

The point format remains unchanged. Four points are offered for the winner of the five-day test match, and two points are offered for all other fixtures. After the success of the Women’s Hundred, the Commonwealth Games and the European Championship, more people than ever are interested in women’s sport.

Women’s cricket has taken a small step in the right direction today, although it would be nice to see the Ashes fully mirror the men’s five-game series.

Ben Stokes’ men’s team schedule has also been set for the Ashes. The 2023 edition will be the first men’s Ashes home series in England history to not feature an August Test, with the format brought forward a month.

Clare Connor, acting chief executive of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), commented on the 2023 schedule.

“Next summer will be huge for the women and men of England. There are few more special events in English sport than an Ashes home series and I know Heather, Ben and their teams will be excited and motivated by the challenge of winning the Ashes back.

“June and July will be very special months for cricket in this country with the excitement of two Ashes series running simultaneously. The women’s game continues to grow and we have clearly entered a new phase in terms of demand for elite women’s sport,” added Connor.

“We saw a record number of spectators pouring into the stadiums for the second season of The Hundred. Now we want to give more fans the chance to see the English in person next summer when they play the Ashes at home.”
