Inter Services T20 cricket will return to Lord's Cricket Ground this year while a military women's match will also take place on the main ground for the first time.

A Forces women's match has previously been played at Lord's but on the nursery pitch.

A confirmed date has been announced for the matches and action will take place on 16 June 2022.

However, one of the usual three men's T20 matches will be played at a different venue prior to that date.

The decision has been made to move one of the men's matches to make way for a women's match.

Further details are yet to be confirmed, including which matches will feature at Lord's.

In 2021, the Inter Services men's T20 cricket took place away from Lord's due to a scheduling issue.

The matches were instead played at Arundel Castle with live coverage provided on the BFBS Sports Show YouTube channel.
