The new deal means BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch every ball from two of England's upcoming overseas Test series, with Joe Root's men travelling to face the West Indies in March 2022 for ODI and T20 matches after completing their tour of Australia.

In addition, BT Sport will also show live coverage of all international tours of Australia. After this year’s Ashes, Australia will take on New Zealand and Sri Lanka in a white ball series.

As well as the renewed deal with Cricket Australia, we also have exclusive broadcast rights of West Indies men’s and women’s domestic and international cricket in the Caribbean, with England's men touring early next year, and New Zealand's men’s and women’s home internationals.

Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “We loved bringing the highs, lows and controversy of the Ashes to our viewers in 2017/18 and relish the opportunity to bring our customers all the action from both a men’s and women’s Ashes in 2021/22.

“BT Sport’s cricket content has continued to grow since we signed our first rights deal with Cricket Australia and we are delighted to be able to bringing more world-class men’s and women’s cricket from Australia to fans across the UK.”
