Women’s international cricket returns to The County Ground in 2022 as England Women host South Africa in Match 1 of the Royal London Series.

South Africa will be the first visitors of the summer from June-July, competing in a multi-format series which takes in an LV= Insurance Test match, three Royal London Internationals and three Vitality IT20s.

The first Royal London Series ODI takes place at The County Ground on Monday the 11th of July.

    After the Commonwealth Games and The Hundred, India will be the opponents for three Vitality IT20s and three Royal London Internationals.

    All games will be broadcast live on Sky Sports with two games simulcast live on the BBC.

    Managing Director of Women’s Cricket, Clare Connor, said: “We are thrilled to be able to announce a compelling summer of international women’s cricket against two of the best teams in the world, in what is a bumper year for the women’s game.

    “With the second edition of The Hundred and the historic opportunity to participate in the Commonwealth Games on home soil, we’re looking forward to seeing our players thrive on the biggest stages.

    “Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, we keep seeing growth in our female participation numbers and I’m optimistic that a summer as action-packed as this, with more days broadcast than ever before, will continue to inspire more women and girls to play and watch the game.”
