England will face India, South Africa and Afghanistan in the group stage of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Australia next year.

Eoin Morgan's team, who were defeated as a finalist in the 2016 event, will begin their campaign at the new Perth Stadium on October 26 against one of the qualifying Group 2 qualifiers, potentially Bangladesh or Sri Lanka.

They will then travel to Sydney to play South Africa at SCG four days later, before a 2-0 world ranking clash at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Nov. 1.

Afghanistan awaits in Brisbane on November 4, before England finish the Super 12 at the Adelaide Oval against the second of the two qualifying games.
