Eoin Morgan’s men, who recently made the highest ever total in a One-Day International – 444 v Pakistan – return to The Brightside Ground in 2017 to take on Ireland and the West Indies.

England’s Royal London match v Ireland on Friday 5 May is the first match of a huge summer of limited overs cricket that includes the ICC Champions Trophy in June. This game will be a vital part of the side’s preparation as they seek to win the competition for the first time.

At the opposite end of the season, the clash with the West Indies is set to light up the last throes of summer on Sunday 24 September.

Chief Executive Will Brown said, “England versus Ireland should not only be a great game but also represents a fantastic first with England hosting Ireland in an ODI in England for the first time ever.

‘It is the first Men’s International match of the year in England and with moments of cricketing history often few and far between, we look forward to welcoming a big crowd for this double celebration.

‘England versus the West Indies at the end of September should be another great game with plenty of big hitting power on both sides.  The West Indian party spirit is sure to make this match a great finale for an iconic International season for Bristol.’

After England’s extraordinary run scoring exploits at Lord’s there is talk that Bristol, with its short straight boundaries, could be the perfect venue to witness the first score of 500 in 50 over cricket.

 

And what of England’s opponents?

With the likes of former Gloucestershire batsman Kevin O’Brien, and current County players like Paul Stirling and Gary Wilson in their side, the Irish are a dangerous outfit and one that England won’t take lightly.

Meanwhile, the World T20 winners, West Indies, will be keen to transfer their form to one day cricket.  They boast a whole host of captivating cricketers including Marlon Samuels, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard and Carlos Brathwaite, who struck England’s Ben Stokes for four sixes in four balls during the final over to secure that T20 title.

Tickets are on sale now, online here or by calling the Ticket Office on 0117 910 8010.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Brightside Ground, Bristol!
