The new deal will extend Sky’s cricket partnership into its 14th year and covers England Test matches, all one-day internationals and Twenty20 matches, some women’s and England Lions matches, as well as at least 60 days of domestic country cricket matches each summer.

“We’re passionate about our commitment to the game, including the men and women’s England teams and the County set up, and we’re delighted to extend our partnership with the ECB,” said Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports.

“Since 2006, our viewers have enjoyed the incredible successes of the England team, including three Ashes victories, winning the ICC World Twenty20 and becoming the number one Test team in the world.  We look forward to continuing the partnership until at least 2019.”
