BT Sport confirms that it has the UK rights to the upcoming edition of The Ashes, as well as Australia's home internationals until 2015.

BT Sport has confirmed that it has acquired the rights to the upcoming edition of The Ashes.

The competition - one of the oldest and fiercest rivalries in world sport - heads down under next month as England look to claim the urn from Australia for the first time since 2015.

BT's deal with Cricket Australia ensures that the broadcaster will remain the UK home for all of Australia's men's and women's home internationals until 2025 - including the women's edition of The Ashes next year.

Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: "We loved bringing the highs, lows and controversy of the Ashes to our viewers in 2017/18 and relish the opportunity to bring our customers all the action from both a men's and women's Ashes in 2021/22.

"BT Sport's cricket content has continued to grow since we signed our first rights deal with Cricket Australia and we are delighted to be able to bringing more world-class men's and women's cricket from Australia to fans across the UK."

The Ashes begins on December 8 at The Gabba in Brisbane.
