Sky Sports will remain the home of televised English cricket until at least 2019, after its TV rights deal with the ECB was extended by two years.

Under the latest agreement, Sky Sports will continue to broadcast every England Test, One-Day International and T20 match, plus at least 60 days of domestic cricket each summer from the county scene.

Viewers will also be able to enjoy coverage of some women’s, England Lions and age-grade cricket matches on Sky Sports.

The broadcast deal for 2018 and 2019 covers home Test series against three of the leading nations in world cricket: India, Pakistan and Australia.

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said the broadcaster is "passionate" about its commitment to the game at all levels and is "delighted" to extend its partnership with the ECB.

"Since 2006, our viewers have enjoyed the incredible successes of the England team, including three Ashes victories, winning the ICC World Twenty20 and becoming the number one Test team in the world," he stated.

"We look forward to continuing the partnership until at least 2019."
