The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has extended its partnership with BBC Sport for a further four years, renewing the audio rights deal that is now set to run till the end of 2024.

The new deal will see all of England men’s and women’s national teams’ games get exclusive ball-by-ball commentary on BBC Radio and BBC Sounds. Along with all of England’s home international matches, the deal will also cover The Hundred, with the BBC providing live commentary for all matches of the 100-ball game as part of its vision of “comprehensive coverage of the domestic game”. 

Barbara Slater, Director, BBC Sport, commented:

We know how much listeners cherish cricket on BBC Radio and especially TMS with its unique combination of expert analysis, lively, engaging and entertaining commentary. It is part of the fabric of cricket and we are delighted this new deal ensures TMS continues its great tradition of making cricket accessible to all.

Tony Singh, ECB Chief Commercial Officer, added:

For many people, TMS, BBC Radio and BBC Sounds will be constant companions through a thrilling summer of cricket. As well as being the only place to go for live audio commentary of The Ashes, it’s also the home of so much great coverage of men’s county and women’s domestic cricket and The Hundred. We’re delighted that we have also now agreed an extension to this winning partnership so that listeners can continue to tune in to BBC Radio and BBC Sounds for live cricket commentary for a further four years.
