England and Wales Cricket Board announces 2023 Ashes venues

Trent Bridge, a stronghold for England, is an absentee from the list of the venues for the 2023 Ashes, but the ground will become the home of the 50-over competition final from 2020, instead of Lord's. The threat of a withdrawal of funding for the project past year had led to concerns about the future of the ground as an global venue.

The need for a reasonable geographical spread hurt the Ageas Bowl's longstanding ambition to stage an Ashes Test in 2023, Edgbaston, Headingley...

Headingley and Old Trafford have been selected, with regular venues Lord's, The Oval and Edgbaston making up the rest of the five-match series.

On both counts, as the European Central Bank this week prepares to publish its major match allocation over the five seasons from 2020 to 2024, Southampton's Ageas Bowl is reportedly heavily in the mix.

Certainly Yorkshire will be relieved by their award of three Tests in the five-year period and a team in the new Twenty20 competition, having pushed their overall debt up to a reported £43m with the redevelopment of the football stand end at Headingley.

"It's right that there should be thorough, independent scrutiny of such a significant process and I would like to thank John Crowther, Karen Earl and Mick Hogan for their contributions, knowledge and expertise".

The Ageas Bowl in Southampton, which was widely expected to be named as one of the five hosts for the 2023 series, and Cardiff were also conspicuous absentees. Hosting an Ashes Test has been a long-time dream of Rod Bransgrove, Hampshire's chairman. But the club still secured the Oval as a host venue on top of its global matches.
