The Foxtel Group today announced it had completed a multi-year agreement with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to bring English international cricket to Australian fans starting with Australia’s T20 and One Day International Tour of England which commences this Saturday, September 5.

The ECB agreement covers 12 international tours to be played in England from 2020 to 2023 including appearances by Australia, India and South Africa. With agreements already in place with Cricket Australia, Cricket South Africa and the Indian Cricket Board of Control, the ECB deal confirms Fox Sports and Kayo as the home of the world’s best cricket.

Fox Sports Executive Director Steve Crawley said: “After a break of almost six months, it will be great to see Australia’s cricket team back in action on Fox Sports against the old foe.

“Anytime Australia and England face-off, the series comes with a special mix of history and anticipation. The T-20 and ODI series will see Australian stars like David Warner, Steve Smith and Pat Cummins come up against World Cup hero Ben Stokes, Eion Morgan and Tom Banton, one of the rising stars of English cricket. It’s going to be an action-packed fortnight of the very best international cricket.

“We are excited that all the T-20 and ODI action on Fox Sports will feature an outstanding commentary team featuring former England captains Mike Atherton and Nasser Hussain along with Michael Holding and our very own Shane Warne.”
