England, the reigning 50-over World Cup champions and current number two ODI side, last toured India in March 2018 for a T20I tri-series in Mumbai, where they finished as runner-ups to Australia.

India and England last met each other in the 2018 ICC World T20 semi-final in the Caribbean. India were knocked out in a one-sided match, while England finished second after losing to Australia in the final.

England’s tour of India will follow India’s tour of New Zealand, where they are scheduled to play three ODIs and three T20Is starting from January 24 in Napier.
