Sky Sports Wins Rights To Show England Cricket's Next Two Tours In Sri Lanka

Sky Sports's "flurry of rights captures in 2014 is set to continue with a deal for England's next two tours to Sri Lanka, starting in November," according to Ben Rumsby of the London TELEGRAPH. The broadcaster is planning to announce coverage of this year's five one-day internationals and two Twenty20 internationals, "as well as a three-Test series and another five one-dayers and Twenty20 match" in '18. The deal "comes just three weeks after Sky snapped up the rights" to the country's '18 and '20 tours to New Zealand and means it is scheduled to broadcast more than 380 days of live England cricket between now and '20 (TELEGRAPH, 2/19).
