England's bid to regain the Ashes next year will begin in Cardiff. Further Tests will follow at Lord's, Edgbaston and Trent Bridge before the final Test of the summer at the Oval, beginning on August 20.

Despite a £32million redevelopment, Emirates Old Trafford has been snubbed as a venue.

The ground last held a game between England and Australia back last year.

The bitter irony for Lancashire is that former coach Peter Moores, who left the Red Rose county to manage England, will meet Australia for the first time at Cardiff - the venue which won the nod over Old Trafford.
