Three ODIs will take place in gap between home Tests against New Zealand

England’s men face having to pick two separate squads for international cricket next summer after their three World Cup Super League ODIs against Netherlands were rescheduled for June. The tour had originally been due to take place in May 2020 but was a casualty of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The matches, to be played at the VRA ground in Amstelveen, will take place on June 17, 19 and 22 – in the gap between the second and third New Zealand Tests at Trent Bridge and Headingley.

There is already a large degree of separation between England’s red- and white-ball squads, with a handful of players – such as Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler and Jofra Archer – used regularly across all three formats. England have greater depth in limited-overs cricket, and beat Pakistan 3-0 earlier this year after having to select an entirely new squad due to a Covid outbreak.
