BeIN Media Group and the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have signed an agreement to boost the coverage of international and domestic cricket in North Africa and the Middle East. Under the six-year deal, BeIN Media Group will screen premium cricket matches, including India's 2018 and 2022 tours to England, as well as the Ashes series in the UK in 2019.

The ECB deal means BeIN Media Group will screen selected matches from ECB’s domestic programme including action from the T20 Blast, Royal London One-Day Cup and the Specsavers County Championship, as well as ECB's new eight-team T20 competition from 2020.

BeIN Media Group has also announced plans to introduce a dedicated BeIN Sports cricket channel in MENA in 2018. The channel will air its portfolio of premium international and domestic cricket, including ECB and Cricket Australia content, as well as original programming, documentaries and magazine shows.
