sky sports cricket summer 2017

Sky has announced its plans for cricket coverage this summer, and it includes more broadcast hours than ever before.

Sky will show live coverage of England's internationals, the ICC Champions Trophy, the ICC Women's World Cup and NatWest T20 Blast, among others.

Firsts will include England playing host to Ireland, and the first day/night Test match in England as part of the Investec West Indies Test series.

Sky's exclusively live coverage lasts from April all the way to late September.

The ICC Champions Trophy will feature the eight-best cricketing nations from around the world, sort of like a 6 Nations of cricket. Matches will be played in England and Wales, with the final taking place at The Oval on Sunday 18th June.

Sky Sports is also home to the domestic season, as well as women's international and domestic fixtures. The England women's team will take part in the ICC Women's World Cup, and for the first time ever, Sky will show live matches from the Kia Super League.

"There is so much to look forward to this year with more hours of cricket than ever before on Sky Sports," said Bryan Henderson, Sky Sports head of cricket. "England will want to return to the top of the Test rankings under new captain Joe Root, the Champions Trophy is up for grabs on home soil, and England's women have the World Cup to play for. It is going to be a long, fascinating summer on Sky Sports."
