England Women have confirmed their schedule for the summer, with West Indies and Australia visiting for six Royal London ODIs, six Vitality T20Is and one Test.

Having lost to Australia in the final of the ICC Women's World T20 on Sunday, England will get the chance to repay the favour when they play a Test at Taunton as part of the Women's Ashes in July. The series will once again be decided by a multi-format points system.

The ODIs against the West Indies will count towards the ICC Women's Championship, with qualification for the Women's World cup in 2021 on the line.

The matches will see Heather Knight and her team visit eight grounds around the UK, starting at Leicester and finishing at Bristol.
