Sky News Update: Sky is delighted to announce that for summer it will be turning one channel into a cricket only channel, showing events such as The Ashes. For all you enthusiastic cricket fans out there, good news! Sky is making the decision to turn its ever popular Sky Sports 2 channel into a channel specifically for coverage of all the cricket this summer. This will provide action from the best of this summers cricket, from women, and men and even youth matches, as well of course this summer’s Ashes match. This cricket extravaganza will start on the 30th June and will go on to the very end of August on the 31st. As well as showing all minor country fixtures, home fixtures, support fixtures and other cricket goings on the main feature will of course be of the annual Ashes match between England and Australia. The Ashes has been played since 1882, and has gathered a momentous following since then, with one of the most celebratory and extravagant rivalries in international sport. It is played in both England and Australia alternatively, with on average around 18 and 30 months between each event. 5 test matches make up ‘The Ashes’ with it often going on for days and days. If there were to be a tie in the match, then the winners from the previous ashes will hold on to the title. As it stands, England are the current trophy holder after winning both the 2009 and 2010/11 series, so the series this summer is sure to be an event not to miss to see if we can maintain our reign!
