Sky & Channel 4 Pact for England’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Final


Sky has struck a deal with Channel 4 to make England’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Final against Pakistan available to all viewers across the U.K. and Ireland.

England’s match will be shown live on Sky Showcase—available in all Sky homes—and on Channel 4, Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Cricket. All channels will broadcast Sky Sports’ coverage, which includes the commentary team of Ian Ward and former England captains Nasser Hussain, Michael Atherton and Eoin Morgan.

Jonathan Licht, managing director of Sky Sports, said: “We know the importance of this game, so we are pleased to be able to share this great sporting moment with our whole nation thanks to our strong relationship with Channel 4. Whether you’re supporting England or Pakistan, this will be one to remember.”

Ian Katz, chief content officer at Channel 4, said: “We are thrilled that Channel 4 and Sky have struck this deal to make another great national sporting moment available on free-to-air television to audiences across the U.K. As the days draw in, some thrilling international cricket from the southern hemisphere should offer some welcome cheer.”

The agreement marks the latest partnership between Sky and Channel 4 to make a key sporting moment available to the nation. Previous events include the 2019 men’s super-over victory against New Zealand and the final race of the 2021 Formula 1 Championship in Abu Dhabi.
