england womens cricket world cup winners

Sky Sports will show more women's cricket than ever before this year. In a first for the service, it will broadcast 12 matches from the Kia Super League, which is almost twice as many as last year.

It will also show England women's return to action against South Africa and New Zealand, starting on 9th June.

The ICC Women's World Twenty20 championship will be broadcast in November.

Other women's sport on Sky Sports includes rugby, golf, and netball. In rugby, it will show England women's Six Nations campaign (starting on 4th February), select international games, HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens Series and Tyrell's Premier 15s.

In golf, we can look forward to the Ladies Professional Golf Association, Ladies European Tour and all five Majors.

While netball coverage comprises the International and Vitality Super League, All-Star Fast 5s and Quad Series Internationals.

Viewing figures for women's sport on Sky Sports reached a record high last year, being up 23 per cent. The women's cricket World Cup final was Sky's most-watched women's sporting event ever, with a peak of over 1.1 million viewers.

"Last year felt like a watershed moment for women's sport, with my undoubted highlight being the moment England's women clinched the World Cup at Lord's," said Bryan Henderson, head of Sky Sports Cricket.

"At Sky Sports, we're proud of the contribution we've made to growing women's sport, and we're determined to continue that in 2018. We have an incredible line-up, across a range of sports, with cricket a huge part of the schedule again. We can't wait to get started."
