England begin a bumper year of Test cricket with a two-match series against Sri Lanka this month.
Joe Root's side could play as many as 17 Test matches in 2021 and will be keen to get off on the right foot in their first five-day outing since wrapping up a 1-0 series win over Pakistan in August.
The jam-packed calendar includes further series against India - away and at home - and New Zealand before England head to Australia for the Ashes in the winter.
