World Cup final to be shown for free in UK if England qualify

By Agency

The ICC Men's Cricket World Cup final will be shown on free-to-air television in the United Kingdom should England reach it.
All of the tournament's matches are being shown on Sky in the UK, and the broadcaster have announced that should the hosts of the tournament reach the final on 14 July - set to take place at Lord's - they will look to widen their audience for what would be England's first appearance in a men's World Cup final since 1979.
Stephen van Rooyen, Sky UK and Ireland Chief Executive said: "Our aim has always been to celebrate what could be a 'once in a generation' moment of a home team in a big final on home soil.
"So, if England reach the final, we will make the match available to everyone so the whole country can be part of a rare and special big sporting moment."
