Sky Sports Cricket was the first broadcaster to show live coverage of a complete overseas tour involving the England cricket team when England toured the West Indies in 1990. Since then Sky Sports Cricket has acquired the rights to show home international series involving England, Australia, West Indies, India, South Africa, New Zealand, Pakistan and Bangladesh. And at various times as well as showing almost every England overseas tour. ICC tournaments such as the Cricket World Cup, Champions Trophy and World Twenty 20 as well as the Stanford Super Series in 2008. Sky also shows extensive coverage of county cricket, with over 60 live games each season involving every county in all competitions.
Sky Sports Cricket first started broadcasting Home England Tests in 1999. In a joint deal with terrestrial broadcaster Channel 4, it began showing 1 home Test each summer plus one-day internationals (Channel 4 were the senior broadcast partner). This arrangement continued until 2006, when Sky Sports’ flagship live coverage of England’s home test series began. The previous year, it was announced by the ECB that it had awarded Sky Sports Cricket exclusive coverage of all of England’s home tests, one-day internationals and Twenty20 Internationals including the 2009 Ashes. The ECB have since renewed Sky Sports’s deal until 2017. The Fifth Test vs India at the Oval, (commencing 15 August 2014) was the 200th England Test shown live on Sky Sports.

The team is completed by Nick Knight, or commentators from the touring side such as former internationals Ricky Ponting (Australia), Rameez Raja (Pakistan), Ravi Shastri (India) and Shaun Pollock (South Africa). Highlights are broadcast in a prime time slot each evening, presented by Charles Colvile, alongside Bob Willis and another guest.
