The first T20I takes place on March 12 in Ahmedabad with the ODI series starting on March 23 in Pune.

Domestically, Sky Sports will be the only place you can watch every ball from the inaugural edition of The Hundred. Many of the best players in the world will be on these shores as the sport’s newest format lifts off.

Bryan Henderson, Sky Sports’ Director of Cricket, said: “We’re delighted to be broadcasting England’s white-ball tour of India. When these two teams meet, the matches are always full of drama and plenty of sensational cricket on display. I expect these limited-overs matches to be no different.

“It’s already gearing up to be a great year of cricket on Sky Sports as we build up to a fantastic summer of men’s and women’s cricket, including The Hundred for the very first time. It’s a year of cricket not to be missed on Sky Sports.”

This latest agreement means Sky Sports is now the home to ICC Tournaments, England, India, Pakistan and South Africa home matches. In addition, Sky will also broadcast the Indian Premier League and the Pakistan Super League.
