International cricket’s biggest events, including the World Cup, World Twenty20 and Champions Trophy, are to remain on Sky Sports until at least 2023.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has awarded the global rights to its 14 competitions to Asian broadcaster STAR - and Sky Sports has an exclusive agreement with the firm to show live cricket in the UK and Ireland.

The latest TV rights deal includes three major tournaments to be staged in Britain - the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, ICC Champions Trophy and the ICC Women’s World Cup in 2017.

Sky Sports' TV schedule also includes all of England's home Tests, One-Day Internationals and Twenty20 matches - including next summer’s Ashes series.

Live cricket from Australia, India, New Zealand, South Africa and the West Indies will also be on offer on the pay-TV platform - including the IPL from 2015, when it moves from ITV4.

Barney Francis, Sky Sports' Managing Director, said the firm is "delighted" to have secured the ICC TV rights and strengthen its commitment to cricket even further.  

"Our cricket schedule keeps getting stronger," he claimed.

"By adding events such as the World Cup, World Twenty20 and Champions Trophy, we’ve never offered our viewers such choice from all formats of the game," he stated.
