BT Sport has confirmed the signings of England cricket legends Michael Vaughan, Graeme Swann, Kevin Pietersen and Australian great Ricky Ponting to offer expert analysis as it kicks off its international cricket coverage.
Greg James, BBC Radio 1 presenter and co-host of Not Just Cricket on BBC Radio 5 Live, will front the coverage on BT Sport with award winning Test Match Special reporter Alison Mitchell based in Australia.
The new home of all Australia’s Test matches, One-Day Internationals and T20 Internationals played in Australia, including the much-anticipated Ashes Test Serie against England in 2017/18.
Your cricket fix doesn’t stop there and you can watch some of the world’s best players such as Brendon McCullum, Mitchell Johnson, Kieron Pollard and Kumar Sangakkara in the T20 Big Bash League, while the Women’s Big Bash League and the Women’s Ashes series will also be shown exclusively on BT Sport.
Coverage kicks off on Thursday 3 November with Australia facing a stellar South Africa side in the first of three Test matches. The Aussies then host Pakistan in another three-match Test series which includes the famous Boxing Day test at the MCG.
The Big Bash League begins on Tuesday 20 December and you can watch highlights of every match on BT’S freeview channel, BT Sport Showcase.
Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “We’re excited to be adding international cricket including next winter’s much anticipated exciting Ashes series, and the hugely successful Australian Big Bash, to the line-up of exclusively live sport available to BT Sport viewers.
"I hope viewers will enjoy our cricket coverage and we’re thrilled that Greg James is joining BT Sport along with some of the greatest players of recent times.”
