The new sound of summer is becoming clearer as Cricket Australia's new broadcast partners, Channel Seven and Fox Sports, continue to announce a long list of broadcasters and former players to their respective commentary teams.

Cricket in Australia will be shown on the two networks this summer after a new six-year broadcast deal was signed in April, ending long associations with the Nine and Ten Networks.

Seven will broadcast all men's Test matches and all women's internationals on free-to-air television as well as the majority of the men's Big Bash League and 23 WBBL matches each season.

Pay TV provider Fox will show all the matches that will be shown on Seven as well as the men's ODIs and T20 internationals, a handful of exclusive men's BBL games, 13 games of the JLT One-Day Cup and the final of the JLT Sheffield Shield.

Both networks will also broadcast the Allan Border & Belinda Clark Medal Night, while all men's and women's domestic matches not shown on Fox Sports, as well as some international tour matches, will be live streamed on Cricket Network.

Take a closer look at the list of broadcasters and expert commentators who have been signed up so far to cover cricket this summer.
