The news was confirmed as the European Central Bank unveiled the eight venues for the new Twenty20 competition and the allocation of global matches until 2024, confirming a marked increase in worldwide T20 cricket as part of radical changes to the global calendar.

"I think that's where the future of cricket is", Hampshire chief executive David Mann told BBC South Today.

Gloucestershire, Durham, Glamorgan and Hampshire will all host England one-day internationals at their grounds throughout this period, with the latter two also set to stage T20 internationals.

The governing body revealed the news on Wednesday, having approved the key venues for all the major domestic and global matches over a five-year period from 2020, subject to contract.

Snowball added: "We've made huge progress attracting more families and in developing our T20 offering at Edgbaston in recent years, which has seen attendances treble and our match day experience scores increase substantially".

The stadium is also one of the eight host venues for the new city T20 competition, which is created to rival the likes of the Indian Premier League and Australian Big Bash.

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

"The SSE SWALEC is a fantastic venue for worldwide cricket and we have excellent customer experience scores showing we provide fans with a 'Warm Welsh Welcome'".

The Ageas Bowl and the SWALEC Stadium have been included on the list of venues for the ECB's new Twenty20 franchise competition.

"Birmingham hosting a team in the new T20 competition also presents a fantastic opportunity to further develop the sport in the city".
