and live on Freeview channel 276
Hove will play host to the second Women’s IT20 versus New Zealand Women on Tuesday, July 9, 2024.
The news came as the full England Women's and Men's cricket schedule for 2024 was revealed
The ECB said: “The 2024 home international season will open with England Women and England Men hosting Pakistan in concurrent white-ball series.
“Heather Knight’s team will start the international summer at Edgbaston as part of a three-match Women’s IT20 Series against Pakistan Women (May 11-19), concluding at Headingley.
“The two sides will then contest three One-Day Internationals (May 23-29). The series takes place at the same time that England Men make their final preparations for their ICC Men’s T20 World Cup title defence.
“England Men defeated Pakistan Men to win the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup title in Melbourne last November, and fans will be treated to a four-match Men’s IT20 Series (May 22-30) between the two teams before Jos Buttler’s team fly out to the Caribbean and United States.
“The side-by-side series against Pakistan will follow the success of this summer’s LV= Insurance Men’s Ashes Series and Metro Bank Women’s Ashes Series, which have been staged alongside each other and when England Women have attracted record ticket sales.
“To build on the growing interest in the women’s game, England Women will play at a selection of high-capacity venues next summer, when they will also host New Zealand in a three-match Women’s ODI Series (June 26 – July 3) and a five-match IT20 Series (July 6-17).
“England Women will play across 14 venues in total – including Edgbaston, The Kia Oval, The Ageas Bowl and Headingley - before finishing their schedule with the fifth IT20 against New Zealand Women at Lord’s on July 17.
“England Men will begin their Test summer following their return from the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, when they host both West Indies Men (July 10-30) and Sri Lanka Men (August 21 – September 10). Each series will be three Tests.
“The Australia Men’s team will return next summer for three Men’s IT20s (September 11-15) and five Men’s One-Day Internationals (September 19-29).
“The England Physical Disability, England Learning Disability, England Visually Impaired and England Deaf teams will also all be in action in 2024, with fixtures to be announced in due course.
“Ticket sales activity is set to commence from August 30 with a Public Ballot for England Men’s and England Women’s international fixtures.”
