Navigate TV guide by series

International cricket | T20 Big Bash | Domestic cricket

Until 2017-18, all home matches were broadcast on Channel Nine. From 2018-19, a new TV deal will see cricket belong on Foxtel and Channel Seven.

The home summer will be divided between the two networks, with all Test cricket and most of the Big Bash League to be simulcast.

Fox Sports have exclusive coverage of ODI and T20I cricket, while they will also broadcast some of the domestic one day competition and the final of the Sheffield Shield.

For away games, Fox Sports normally deal with away boards to secure the rights to matches, such as the recent tours to South Africa and Zimbabwe.

To see all of Australia’s home fixtures which will be broadcast on seven and Fox, you can check out our Australian cricket fixtures page.
