India vs England cricket 2021: Time, TV Schedule & How to watch
The Test series may not have gone England’s way, but the side have a chance to redeem themselves against India with a string of white ball cricket showdowns on tour. Five T20 Internationals are coming up with T20 and One Day International captain Eoin Morgan jetting out to Asia for the limited overs contests.
Of course, England enjoyed a rampant 2019 on the ODI front as they won the World Cup and have now gone eight T20 series’ without defeat – their last came in 2018 against India. The short form of the game has tilted England’s way for several years now and Morgan will be keen to restore some glory to the camp following a rough few weeks on the Test front.
A late TV rights battle for the Test matches ended in victory for Channel 4, but the limited overs matches will move back to more familiar territory in the coming weeks. Check out the all the dates, times, TV and radio schedules for India v England.

India v England cricket 2021: How to watch
Channel 4 is the broadcaster of the England-India Test series after a long-running TV rights bidding war that included up to six companies.
There had been intense negotiations between Star Sports in India, which owns the rights to the series, and UK broadcasters. Both BT Sport and Sky Sports made bids for the series, but Channel 4 triumphed and is showing the Tests on Channel 4 and All 4, its on-demand service.
Sky Sports is poised to show the five Twenty20 internationals and three one-day internationals that follow. The timings of the white-ball games are far more favourable for UK viewers: the T20Is will begin at 1.30pm, and the ODIs at 8am or 9am, according to Telegraph.
