sky sports world cup

For six weeks, Sky Sports 2 will be rebranded as Sky Sports World Cup, bringing 24/7 coverage of the ICC Cricket World Cup.

It will offer more than 1,000 hours of coverage, including all 49 matches live, along with build-up, analysis and highlights.

The action kicks off on Friday February 13th, when current champs Sri Lanka take on New Zealand. This will be preceded by two hours of live build-up and followed by England's game against Australia.

The channel will launch at 6am with a retrospective of classic World Cup matches. Then former Australian player Adam Gilchrist will host a masterclass special.

Commentary comes courtesy of Sir Ian Botham, Mike Atherton, David Lloyd, Nasser Hussain and Nick Knight.

Back in Blighty, David Gower, Charles Colvile and Matt Floyd will mull over the action, along with guests including Bob Willis, Andrew Strauss and Matt Prior.

You can watch live on Sky Go using your mobile, laptop or tablet.

"By dedicating a whole channel to the tournament, fans know there's only one place to watch all of the action live, catch up with highlights and enjoy the reaction and views of our experts," Barney Francis, Sky Sports managing director, said.

"This is the biggest ever year of cricket on Sky Sports and the channel will help make sure it's our best yet."

Sky previously renamed Sky Sports 4 for the Ryder Cup golf tournament.
