Nothing says all summer long like the cricket.
Nine has unrivalled access to the next ashes series from England in 2019, the ODI World Cup in the UK in the same year and in 2020 the T20 World Cups to be held in Australia.
A battle that has raged for 137 years, The Ashes returns to its traditional home on Nine on August 1, 2019, with all games live during prime time over 25 days of play between Australia and “The Old Enemy”, England. Marking the first time that superstars Steve Smith and David Warner will be eligible again to play test cricket, all eyes will be on the English summer to see if the Aussies can back up their dominant Ashes win in 2017-18.
CRICKET WORLD CUP
Australia defends its Cricket World Cup crown in 2019, with England and Wales hosting the championship from May 30. After defeating co-hosts New Zealand in the final at a packed MCG in 2015, Australia will join the other nine top cricketing nations in the One-Day International tournament to be played over 46 days, with the hallowed turf of Lord’s the setting for the 2019 final.
