Dates for England's two Test matches and one ODI at Lord's in 2015 - including the Investec Ashes Series clash against Australia - have been announced.
Lord's will host the second Test of the Ashes Series, starting on Thursday 16 July, as England attempt to regain the Urn they surrendered last winter.
The Home of Cricket also hosts the first Test of the summer, when New Zealand visit Lord's to kick-off their two-match series on Thursday 21 May.
In a return to the pattern of recent years, the first Test takes place in May, prior to the one-day clashes between the two teams.
The international summer is then rounded off in September, with the second ODI between England and Australia on Saturday 5 September.
Tickets for all three matches will be allocated through the Lord's Ticket Ballot.
Applications will open later in 2014. Any unallocated tickets will then go on general sale in early 2015.
To be among the first to hear the ballot opening date, and for all ticket news from Lord's, please sign up to our email newsletter.
