England will play two Twenty20 internationals against West Indies at The Oval in September.

The fixtures were not originally in this year's schedule but in June the England and Wales Cricket Board announced its intention to stage them.

The matches will take place on Friday 23 September and Sunday 25 September.

Surrey chief executive Richard Gould said adult tickets have been priced from £25, while tickets for under-16s will be available at £1.

Angus Porter, chief executive of the Professional Cricketers' Association, which represents England cricketers, suggested some players may be rested for the matches.

"The PCA and the players have accepted the need for these additional games in order to fulfil the demands of the broadcasting contract signed some years ago," he told BBC Sport.

"We have been promised that the matches will be used in part for player development, and expect that some key players will be rested in advance of the India tour which starts shortly afterwards.''
