Channel 4 to show Cricket World Cup Final as Sky gives up exclusive rights

Sky has responded to England reaching the Cricket World Cup Final for the first time since 1992 by making it free to view across the UK. Sky holds the exclusive rights to all ICC organised events, but pressure from fans, media and the players themselves has resulted in Sky reaching an agreement with Channel 4 which will see the broadcaster show the entire final on Sunday. This will be the first time live international cricket has been shown free on UK television since the 2005 Ashes.
