The England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has revealed that England will tour India, Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates - where they will play Pakistan - this winter.
They will travel to India to play five One-Day Internationals and a Twenty20 International, they will play three Tests, four ODIs and three T20Is against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi and Dubai before two Tests in Sri Lanka in March and April.
The limited overs leg of the Sri Lanka tour will be held in late 2014 while the final itinerary for the series against Pakistan in the UAE has yet to be finalised.
"We are very pleased to have agreed an itinerary with BCCI for the forthcoming one-day series which includes matches in India's major cities and will suit the needs of both the England team and our travelling supporters," David Collier, chief executive of the ECB said.
"With India due to play a NatWest Series here in September, there is bound to be intesse interest in the return contest in India this October and we look forward to what should be a fascinating series of one-day encounters between the two teams.
"The remainder of the winter programme will see England travel to UAE early in the New Year to play Pakistan in all three formats of the game followed by a short break in the UK before the team takes on Sri Lanka in a two-match Test series."
