London - The England and Wales Cricket Board says Nottinghamshire's Trent Bridge will stage Test matches during the Ashes series in both 2013 and 2015, along with Lord's and The Oval in London.

The other two venues for the five-match series against Australia will be Lancashire's Old Trafford and Durham's Riverside in 2013, and Warwickshire's Edgbaston and Glamorgan's SWALEC Stadium in 2015.

The ECB announced the Ashes venues on Thursday along with a list of grounds for several other England fixtures between 2013 and 2016.

The decision and likely revenue from England-Australia Test matches is a boost for Nottinghamshire after spending millions upgrading facilities at Trent Bridge.
