natwest t20 blast cricket

Sky Sports is to show 50 county cricket matches this summer as part of its "biggest-ever year of live cricket".

The pay-TV broadcaster will cover games from the NatWest T20 Blast, the Royal London One-Day Cup and the LV= County Championship during 2015, with all 18 counties appearing on live TV.

Sky Sports - which broadcast the recent ICC Cricket World Cup - is also covering England's Test series against the West Indies, New Zealand and Australia, plus - for the first time - the ever-popular Indian Premier League.

Bryan Henderson, Sky Sports' Executive Producer for Cricket, said viewers will be able to catch the best of the domestic cricket action on Sky Sports with every county, all three competitions and 50 live games.

He noted that a "host of stars" from the international game have joined county teams this summer, including Brendon McCullum (Birmingham Bears) Chris Gayle (Somerset), Kumar Sangakkara (Surrey) and Shahid Afridi (Northamptonshire Steelbacks).

"There’ll be lots of big hitting and quality domestic cricket live on Sky this summer," Mr Henderson added.

Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch live action via their Sky+HD set-top boxes, or online via Sky Go if they have a broadband subscription.

Other cricket fans can buy a Sky Sports Day Pass for £6.99 or Sky Sports Week Pass for £10.99 through NOW TV, the content streaming provider.

They can use the pass to watch live sport on a variety of mobile devices, or on their television sets using a NOW TV box.
