Trent Bridge - the English venue that hosted one of Australia's most embarrassing defeats - has again been overlooked for future Ashes Tests. Each venue will host four group matches a year.

Trent Bridge could misses out on an Ashes in 2023, but they are likely to host a team in the upcoming Twenty 20 tournament.

On Wednesday, the European Central Bank also announced the cities that will host the new eight-team Twenty20 tournament in 2020. The Ageas Bowl will not host any Tests at all in the 2020-24 period.

Overall, the allocation of the Tests marks a return to the format's traditional outposts with Cardiff, Durham and Southampton awarded only limited-overs internationals.

While the European Central Bank has yet to officially confirm the teams that will contest the new competition, it has dropped a significant clue by announcing the venues that will stage matches from 2020-2024.

Lord's and The Oval (both London), Edgbaston (Birmingham), Headingley (Leeds) and Old Trafford (Manchester) all got the ECB's tick of approval.

The photos were the first new pictures to show the star's body since November, as she had been keeping her pregnancy a secret. She was seen twice out with best friend Jordyn Woods, including rocking spandex shorts that highlighted her curvy frame.

Meanwhile, the European Central Bank confirmed the eight teams for the new T20 competition will be based out of the five 2019 Ashes venues, plus Trent Bridge, Ageas Bowl and Cardiff.

Again, both London grounds appear sure to be staging matches alongside the four long-established worldwide venues in major cities - with the Ageas Bowl and Cardiff's Sophia Gardens also expected to be named.

"With a five-year period of global and domestic cricket in prospect, as well as our New Competition being developed, there was very strong interest in hosting these events and the overall standard of submissions was excellent".

"It's right that there should be thorough, independent scrutiny of such a significant process and I would like to thank John Crowther, Karen Earl and Mick Hogan for their contributions, knowledge and expertise".

Edgbaston and Trent Bridge will also host matches for a new T20 competition which begins in two years' time.
