Sky Sports to Broadcast England’s Next Four Cricket Tours to West Indies

By Community | December 13, 2012

Sky Sports have sealed a eight-year deal with West Indies Cricket to show England’s next four tours to the Caribbean.

The agreement features all Test, ODI and Twenty20 international matches played in the region until 2020.

England will next visit the West Indies in 2014, with further trips to follow in 2015, 2017 and 2019.

Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports, said: “Sky’s first televised cricket was from the West Indies in 1990 and this deal further shows our commitment to overseas cricket by providing four more live England cricket tours from the Caribbean.

“As recent ICC World Twenty20 champions, West Indies are always exciting to watch and very popular with our viewers. This adds more depth to our live scheduling and means Sky Sports has never offered greater depth and breadth of coverage nor a stronger line-up of live sport for our viewers to watch at home or on the move.”
