The England women's cricket team will host their Indian counterparts for a sole Test and three ODI matches in August this year before playing against South Africa in a Twenty20 series.

The Test against India, which will be played at Buckinghamshire from August 13-16, will be the first Test between the sides since 2006 when India won in Taunton to secure a series victory.

According to the BBC, two of the ODIs will be held in Scarborough on August 21 and 23, while the third and final game will be played at Lord's on August 25.

The report mentioned that the Indian women's team last toured England in 2012, when England won a five-match ODI series 3-2, but they have not played Test cricket since that five-wicket win in Somerset.

Meanwhile, the report added that the South African side would arrive in England at the end of August for a 13-day tour, which will include three T20 internationals, the final match of which will be played ahead of the men's T20 international between England and India at Edgbaston.
