Chennai will host the first 2 Tests between India and England in February 2021 as England visit the Asian country for a much-anticipated full tour. Ahmedabad's rebuilt Motera Stadium will host a day-night Test and the 4th Test along with all T20Is of a 5-match series. A 3-match ODI series will be played in Pune.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) confirmed the schedule on Thursday, December 10.

India and England were scheduled to meet in the limited-overs leg of the series in September-October 2020, but the series was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The upcoming full tour of England will be India's first international assignment at home since the enforced break due to the Covid-pandemic.

Chennai will host the Test series opener from February 5 while the 2nd Test will also be played at the capital city of Tamil Nadu. The series will then move to Ahmedabad where the rebuilt Motera Stadium, with a capacity of 110,000, will host a day-night Test.

"Ahmedabad is expected to turn pink when it hosts the third Test on 24th of February under lights," the BCCI said in a release.

The Test series will be followed by a 5-match T20I series from March 12 to 20. Ahmedabad will host all 5 T20Is following which Pune will host 3 ODIs from March 23 to 28.
