Sky Sports will broadcast more hours of cricket than ever before this summer, including live coverage of England’s internationals, the ICC Champions Trophy, the ICC Women’s World Cup, NatWest T20 Blast and more.
With exclusively live coverage from April through to late September, Sky Sports customers will be able to enjoy an extensive schedule of international cricket as England take on South Africa, West Indies and, for the first time ever on home soil, Ireland. In another first, Sky will broadcast the first day/night Test match in England as part of the Investec West Indies Test series.
As well as England’s matches, Sky will broadcast the ICC Champions Trophy tournament taking place in England and Wales. The tournament will feature the eight-best cricketing nations from around the world with the final taking place at The Oval on Sunday 18 June. Cricket fans can also look forward to the fast-paced domestic season on Sky Sports, where Northamptonshire, Middlesex and Warwickshire will all be looking to add to their trophy cabinets.
In addition to the schedule of men’s cricket, viewers will also be able to follow the women’s international and domestic competitions. The England women’s team will be in action in the ICC Women’s World Cup and, for the first time ever, Sky Sports will show live matches from the Kia Super League where the Southern Vipers are hoping to defend the title they won last year.
Bryan Henderson, Sky Sports Head of Cricket, commented: “There is so much to look forward to this year with more hours of cricket than ever before on Sky Sports. England will want to return to the top of the Test rankings under new captain Joe Root, the Champions Trophy is up for grabs on home soil, and England’s women have the World Cup to play for. It is going to be a long, fascinating summer on Sky Sports.”
Cricket is part of a huge summer of sport on Sky Sports, which includes exclusively live coverage of the British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand, golf’s Majors including The Open, US Open and Women’s British Open, F1® in ultra-high definition and much more.
