Most of Europe may still be in the grip of winter in February, but that doesn't stop cricket everywhere on the continent as Spain will host Isle of Man next month in the earliest ever start to the European international season.

The teams will play six T20Is in all with two per day from Friday 24th February to Sunday 26th.

These will be the first T20Is between the men's sides of the two associate members, though the women's sides met as part of a pentagular tournament in November with Spain winning by 14 runs. The sides have met in pre-universal status days in ICC Europe pathway events, with Spain winning the one previous T20 and the sides splitting two 50-over contests.

All games will be played at the La Manga resort in Murcia.
