Domestic cricket coverage

BBC Local Radio will broadcast live commentary of every single county match, with increased coverage on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra most weeks.

Online highlights

Under a new four-year deal, the BBC will be able to broadcast video coverage of ICC tournaments on the BBC Sport website.

The deal allows the BBC to show video clips, end-of-day round-ups, digital preview programming features and archive material in the UK.

Does cricket leave you Stumped?

BBC World Service's weekly cricket show Stumped, produced in association with Australia's ABC and All India Radio, has returned for a new series with news, views, interviews and features from around the world of cricket. It is presented by the BBC's Alison Mitchell, ABC's Jim Maxwell and AIR's Charu Sharma.

TMS contract until end of 2019

In January 2012, BBC Sport announced a new six-year radio rights deal with the England and Wales Cricket Board, which means TMS will be on air with exclusive radio commentary of all home series up to and including the end of the 2019 season, with more coverage of domestic cricket and women's internationals.

You can also access the BBC Ashes Archive at bbc.co.uk/ashesarchive for some famous historical moments from the past, as described by TMS.

International cricket broadcast via the BBC Sport website and BBC Sport app on desktop, mobile and tablet is available to UK users only, but all county cricket coverage is available worldwide.
