The game, the first in a three-match series, will be played on Thursday, 8 July.

Pakistan, Champions Trophy holders, will be England’s opponents at Lord’s and Edgbaston will play host to the other two games in the series.

The ECB has also announced a provisional home schedule for the summer of 2021.

The coronavirus pandemic forced all of 2020’s fixtures to be played behind closed doors in Southampton, Manchester and Derby.
