Lord’s Cricket Ground will host England and India Women in the final match of the Royal London ODI series on Monday 25 August.
The match, which takes place on a Bank Holiday, will be the third of the series, bringing to a close a tour where India meet England in three ODIs and one Test.
England will be captained by MCC World Cricket committee member Charlotte Edwards, who will also lead MCC Women in the Bicentenary celebration match against the Rest of the World women on Monday 19 May.
The two sides have met twice in ODIs at Lord’s with one win apiece.
Claire Taylor, who is also confirmed to play in the MCC v Rest of the World Women’s match, hit 156 not out as England won by 100 runs in 2006, which remains the highest individual score in an ODI at Lord’s.
In 2012 India’s captain Mithali Raj hit an unbeaten 94 as the tourists won by five wickets in a thrilling final over win.
England, who won the Women’s Ashes in Australia last month, will also host South Africa this summer, with three Twenty20 matches taking place in September.
ECB Head of Women’s Cricket Clare Connor said: "Last summer saw record numbers of spectators through the gates to watch England regain the Women’s Ashes, and this year’s international schedule presents a similarly exciting proposition for cricket fans up and down the country to see some of the best women’s cricketers in the world in action."
