Nine’s Wide World of Sports is the home of the 2023 Ashes, exclusive, live and free from England on the 9Network and 9Now, from Friday, June 16.
The Ashes is one of the greatest rivalries in world sport, and both the men’s and women’s series will be televised across six huge weeks of cricket on the Wide World of Sports.
Pat Cummins and Steve Smith will lead the Aussie men’s team out to retain the urn in the five-test series on British soil.
Ellyse Perry and Alyssa Healy will head up the Aussie women’s path to success when they play an Ashes series across test, ODI and T20 formats from Thursday, June 22.
Hosted by Roz Kelly, Nine’s commentary team for the Men’s Ashes will be made up of former Australian captain Mark Taylor, Ashes winner Ian Healy, World Cup-winning captain Aaron Finch and former internationals Callum Ferguson and Steven O’Keefe.
Taylor will be joined on the ground at all five tests by Louise Ransome, while former Australian internationals Rachael Haynes and Eylse Villani, plus host Emma Lawrence, will join the team for the Women’s Ashes.
Nine’s Director of Sport, Brent Williams, said today: “The Ashes: two simple words that represent so much in our nation’s sporting history, with famous moments, legendary players and unforgettable battles.
“An Ashes series never fails to deliver, and Wide World of Sports is proud to be right at the heart of it with our exclusive broadcast of both the men’s and women’s Ashes on Channel 9HD and 9Now.”
