Edgbaston and Old Trafford have been awarded extra fixtures by the ECB after a T20 and an ODI handed back by Durham were reallocated. Edgbaston will host India for a T20 international next year while Old Trafford was awarded a second Australia ODI during the Ashes summer of 2015.

Both matches were initially part of Chester-le-Street's package when the allocations were made in 2011. However, in May, Durham decided to return two of the four fixtures they were due to host in 2014 and 2015, with chief executive David Harker saying they had decided "to be cautious over what we could expect to sell to the public". The ECB then re-initiated the tender process.

Edgbaston will now host India for an ODI and a T20 in 2014, as well as a Sri Lanka ODI and the domestic T20 Finals Day. Old Trafford, which will this summer host its first Test since 2010, has been awarded two Australia ODIs for 2015, as well as T20 featuring New Zealand.

The ECB's chief executive, David Collier, said: "We congratulate the two venues on being awarded these fixtures which will form part of a very exciting programme of international cricket both next summer and in 2015."
