The BBC has teamed up with ECB in a new partnership to bring live cricket back to BBC TV.
The deal, which runs from 2020 to 2024, involves live TV coverage of two England men's international T20 matches, one England women's T20 international, plus live TV coverage of 10 men's matches from ECB's New T20 competition, and up to eight live matches from the women\s T20 tournament including both Finals.
The BBC will also broadcast TV highlights of England men's home international matches.
Director General Tony Hall said: "The BBC is delighted and the public will be too. It's long been our ambition to bring live cricket back to BBC television. I'm thrilled to see that ambition realised. Cricket is an integral part of the British summer and the BBC will be putting its full weight behind the nation’s favourite summer sport.
"Our aim will be to make the new T20 competition a huge success. Existing cricket fans - and the millions more who will discover a new love of cricket - have a huge amount to look forward to."
In addition, the BBC has retained exclusive, live national radio rights to English cricket. TMS will continue to deliver ball-by-ball commentary of all England men's internationals alongside an expanded commitment to the women's game.
The BBC has also re-secured an extensive package of digital clip rights to the English cricketing summer building on a service viewed more than 30 million times last year. Live audio commentaries from every match of the County cricket season will also be available on the BBC Sport website.
