Sky Sports has agreed a new five-year partnership with the England & Wales Cricket Board to broadcast international and county cricket from 2020.
The deal includes every new match from the T20 competition and a commitment to drive participation and further interest in the game. Between now and 2024, Sky Sports will be the only place to watch live coverage of all England home Tests, One Day Internationals and T20s, women's matches and county cricket.

Managing director Barney Francis said: “This is a ground-breaking agreement that represents a new and exciting approach to sports rights in this country. It extends our partnership with the game into a third decade and will see us work with the ECB to excite and engage cricket fans of all ages.

“We will continue to innovate in our coverage and make it accessible across our channels, products and services. And drawing on our experience of getting millions on their bikes with our successful 8-year Sky Ride initiative, we are committed to working with the ECB to help grow the game at all levels.”
