Fans will also get to watch plenty of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah in the next year as Sky Sports will also broadcast India's home tours against South Africa (Oct 2021), New Zealand (November 2021), West Indies (January 2022) and Sri Lanka (February 2022).

I couldn't find anything by googling, this appears to be only on Sky website.

Is it accurate because Channel 4 were announced as the broadcasters for the whole tour (test, T20 and ODI) although interestingly it only applied exclusive to the tests.

Sky's announcement seems to contradict this - I suppose time will tell.

Why would Sky put it on their website if it was not true?

Equally why would internet previously state Channel 4 had the rights?

Maybe it will be on both?

Does anyone have a link to the Channel 4 rights article? Has it been amended since original publication?

Link to the Channel 4 presser dated Feb 3rd. Makes no mention of the white ball rights.

Interesting they say 'exclusive free to air' which could indicate that sky are also showing it but channel 4 are the only ones showing it free.

They are the only ones showing it - but it, as per that page, is test match cricket.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

The original said Channel 4 had the rights to the whole tour but reading carefully said C4 had exclusive rights to the Tests but didn't say exclusive rights to T20/ODI matches.

It may have been altered/superseded.

As I said there was nothing on the Internet about sky having the T20/ODI rights apart from on Sky's own website.

It doesn't affect me as I have access to both.

Interestingly I have seen an article that suggests C4 only paid £5m not the £20m the Indians wanted - I think questions should be asked why BBC didn't compete - saving their money for Wimbledon perhaps?

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Channel 4's rights were only ever for the Test Series. Here's another source stating so:
https://www.theguardian.com/sport/20...rights-cricket

And another source stating Sky winning the rights to the ODI and T20 Series, published 7 days ago:
https://www.insidesport.co/india-vs-...nd-odi-series/

And this article, also in the guardian

http://www.theguardian.com/sport/Feb...-4-wins-rights

Clearly states it is the entire tour - four tests, five Twenty20s and 3 ODI

That article came out a day before the Channel 4 press release so reasonable to think their sources at the time may have assumed it was the whole thing before it was clarified the following day.

Most of Six Nations looks increasingly likely it will go behind a paywall.

I'm not so sure about the 6N going pay, but there's lots of fairly consistent rumours that the 6N & autumn-internationals will be bundled together in a new TV deal.

I won't be at all surprised to see the autumn series go predominantly pay, in return for keeping more of the 6N, on FTA.
