The visitors will play three T20 matches, three one-day internationals and five Tests against England, starting with a 20-over clash in Manchester on Tuesday.

Pandya will replace Washington Sundar for the T20 match and Patel will step in for Jasprit Bumrah in the ODI, the Board of Control for Cricket in India said.
