Sky Sports first started broadcasting Home England Tests in 1999. In a joint deal with terrestrial broadcaster Channel 4, it began showing 1 home Test each summer plus one-day internationals (Channel 4 were the senior broadcast partner). This arrangement continued until 2006, when Sky Sports' flagship live coverage of England's home test series began. The previous year, it was announced by the ECB that it had awarded Sky exclusive coverage of all of England's home tests, one-day internationals and Twenty20 Internationals including the 2009 Ashes with highlights on Channel 5 produced by Sunset & Vine who produced Channel 4's coverage. The ECB have since renewed Sky Sports' deal until 2024 with BBC taking over the rights held by Channel 5 and picking up additional rights. The Fifth Test vs India at the Oval, (commencing 15 August 2014) was the 200th England Test shown live on Sky Sports.
Cricket coverage is presented by former England captain David Gower and an illustrious commentary team including former captains Nasser Hussain, Michael Atherton and Sir Ian Botham, popular former England batsman and coach and first-class umpire David Lloyd, former West Indian fast bowler Michael Holding and Australian legend Shane Warne, who joined the team during the 2009 Ashes. The team is completed by Ian Ward, or commentators from the touring side such as former internationals Ricky Ponting (Australia), Rameez Raja (Pakistan), and Shaun Pollock (South Africa). Highlights are broadcast in a prime time slot each evening, presented by David Gower, alongside Bob Willis and another guest.
Coverage of county cricket is presented and commentated on by former Surrey and England batsman Ian Ward and Charles Colvile. In addition to the presenters and those commentators involved in the international coverage, Paul Allott, Mark Butcher, Robert Key and Andrew Flintoff commentate on county cricket along with special guests such as Glamorgan's former England offspinner Robert Croft, veteran seamer Dominic Cork and former Australia and Gloucestershire all-rounder Ian Harvey.
Overseas series involving England are presented either from the ground by David Gower or from a London studio by Ian Ward or Charles Colvile. The commentary team is largely unchanged from that used for England home series.
Other international cricket is presented by Matt Floyd, Paul Allott and Nick Knight in the Sky Sports studio alongside pundits such as Ian Harvey, Jeremy Coney, Colin Croft, Robert Croft, Robert Key, Mark Butcher, Marcus Trescothick and Vikram Solanki.
Match coverage is taken from host broadcasters around the world such as Channel Nine in Australia, Sky TV in New Zealand, Supersport in South Africa, and STAR Sports in India, with ONE World Sports carrying the network's coverage of the England team's tours in the United States. This ensures the voices of the likes of Mark Nicholas, Ian Chappell, Simon Doull, Ian Smith, Robin Jackman, Pommie Mbangwa, Ramiz Raja, Wasim Akram, Mohammad Akram, Kepler Wessels, Laxman Sivaramakrishnan, Ravi Shastri and Sunil Gavaskar are heard each winter on Sky.
Coverage of the 2011 World Cup was presented from London by David Gower and Matt Floyd along with a team of pundits which included the regular guests as well as Ajit Agarkar and Marvan Atapattu.
