Following an agreement by Warner Bros Discovery (WBD), TNT Sports has been made the official home of all international cricket played in India for the next five years commencing with the Test series against England.
In anticipation of the first Test match commencing on January 25, the agreement relieves concerns regarding a UK blackout of the five-match Test series that will now be broadcast on the TNT Sports channel and the streaming service Discovery+.
England’s trip will mark the beginning of a five-year cooperation between WBD, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), and Pitch, an organisation that distributes TV rights to India’s home internationals on behalf of the sport’s national governing body in the UK.
The arrangement covers all red and white-ball international cricket matches played in India for both men’s and women’s teams, in addition to the upcoming Test series.
In the course of the deal, the England men’s team will visit India twice: once for a white-ball series in the beginning of 2025 and once more for a Test series in January and February of 2028.
The forthcoming Test series will kick off on Thursday, next week, at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.
