England’s limited-overs series against India next month, comprising of five Twenty20s at Ahmedabad and three one-day internationals at Pune, will be screened exclusively by Sky Sports, the broadcaster has announced.
Live Test cricket returned to terrestrial television this month for the first time in 16 years, with Channel 4 showing the ongoing four-match series between Joe Root’s team and Virat Kohli’s side, currently deadlocked at 1-1.
But the white-ball matches, starting with the first T20 on March 12 as England build towards the sprint format World Cup in India later this year and ending with the last ODI on March 28, have been secured by Sky.

‘We’re delighted to be broadcasting England’s white-ball tour of India and are especially looking forward to the five T20 internationals as we build up to the IPL and the ICC T20 World Cup later this year,’ said Sky Sports director of cricket Bryan Henderson.
England fast bowler Stuart Broad, a Test regular with 517 wickets but no longer part of the set-up under Eoin Morgan, is among those set to provide remote commentary and analysis for the series.
Sky also says it will show India’s home tours against South Africa, New Zealand, West Indies and Sri Lanka, scheduled to take place in the next 12 months.
