The News Corp-owned pay-TV broadcaster will air live coverage of the five-match Test series between England and India, as well as the five-match one-day international series and T20 international between the sides later in the year.

The package also includes next summer’s tour by New Zealand and the MCC v Rest of the World match on July 5th at Lord’s.

Fox Sports chief executive Patrick Delany added: “Cricket fans in Australia have been asking for television coverage of this tour and we are thrilled that we’ll be delivering exclusive coverage to thousands of Australian-based England and India fans who won’t want to miss a ball once the action starts next week. The addition of the next two tours in England also rounds out our extensive schedule of international cricket over the next 12 months, including showing every game live of the 2015 Cricket World Cup.”
