However, ECB have confirmed that India will be back in the UK in less than a year to play some white-ball cricket from July 1 to July 14. The schedule is as follows:

We look forward to India returning: Tom Harrison
Reflecting on the action-packed home season, ECB Chief Executive Officer Tom Harrison said, “It has been a scintillating summer of cricket and so good to see crowds back, packing out venues later this summer. For next summer, I am pleased to be able to confirm three high-quality men’s international touring teams for 2022, starting with a three-Test series against World Test Champions New Zealand."
“We also look forward to India returning for two white-ball series before we host South Africa for what promises to be hard-fought series across three formats, including three Test Matches," he concluded.
