SKY SPORT SIGNS THREE YEAR DEAL WITH CRICKET AUSTRALIA

SKY Sport is proud to bring cricket fans LIVE coverage of Australian cricket for the next three years.

The agreement – which includes both men’s and women’s international games along with the respective Big Bash League competitions – starts with the eagerly anticipated first test match  between Australia and South Africa in Perth on Thursday.

It’s a bumper summer of cricket in Australia with three test matches against South Africa followed by the Chappell-Hadlee Series and then tests, one-day-internationals and T20 games featuring Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The women’s team, the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars take on New Zealand’s WHITE FERNS in three T20s, which will be broadcast as double-headers with the men’s games against Sri Lanka in February.

The KFC Big Bash League and the Rebel WBBL are, once again, set to captivate fans when they start in December. The first broadcast WBBL games will be during the opening weekend on December 10 and 11, with the BBL following on December 20.

Fans can tune into SKY Sport 3 this Thursday from 3.28pm for ball by ball coverage from the WACA Ground in Perth.
