Excitement all round as free-to-air England cricket inches closer

The BBC's director of Sport - Barbara Slater - has expressed her pleasure at English cricket's upcoming return to terrestrial television, and hopes the move will ‘inspire and capture the imagination' of the next generation of England fans.
Following 14 years on Channel Five, highlights of England's home men's Test matches will return to the BBC starting in 2020.
The highlights coverage will be joined by live screening of two men's and one women's T20 internationals as the cricket world transitions into Twenty20 mode ahead of the World T20 in Australia.
The Beeb will also show extensive live coverage of the inaugural Hundred competition, with the aim of capitalising on the groundswell of interest the sport has developed following a remarkable World Cup and Ashes series, both on home soil.
