The waiting is over as England look to bounce back from their Ashes disappointment of last summer with red-ball action in 2024 featuring matches against the West Indies (Wednesday 10 to Sunday 14 July) and Sri Lanka. (Thursday 29 August to Monday 2 September).  First up a packed crowd at the Home of Cricket is assured for the visit of the West Indies and an England Test match at Lord’s between two fierce age-old rivals. 

2022 & 2023 RECAP

2022 was a year in which England, reinvigorated under the new leadership of captain Ben Stokes and Test coach Brendon McCullum, embraced an attacking form of Test cricket which paid huge dividends.  Outplayed in The Ashes in Australia during the winter of 2021 and losing on tour in the West Indies in March, England’s men got back to winning ways in red-ball cricket with a 3-0 series win over New Zealand.   

The England players headed into the 2023 Ashes series against Australia in buoyant mood, looking to win back the famous urn.  But it wasn’t be.  A fiery five-match Test series ended in a 2-2 draw meaning the Baggy Greens retained the Ashes until the side collide again for the 2025/2026 series in Australia.


Back to the present and this week England will be aiming to rediscover their scintillating home form at Lord’s in the first of three Test matches against the West Indies this summer.  Revenge is the name of the game for the hosts who lost the last Test series between the sides which took place in the Caribbean in March 2022.  The series ended 1-0 in favour of the West Indies who won the deciding third Test by ten wickets.

The sides last met at the Home of Cricket in 2017.  England proving too strong with Ben Stokes named Player of the Match after a six-wicket haul in West Indies first innings and top-scoring with the bat.  England cruised to a nine-wicket victory.

Who will come out in top in this latest edition of a historic cricketing rivalry?  All will be revealed over the next five days on the hallowed Lord’s turf in St John’s Wood.

The MCC Museum is open to all ticket holders during the duration of the match.  Located behind the Pavilion it’s a treasure trove of cricketing history housing an extraordinary collection of memorabilia.
