Fox Sports has added Ellyse Perry to their cricket commentary team for the coming summer.
Ellyse, who is the world’s No. 1 ranked all-rounder, will join the likes of Shane Warne, Ian Healy, Mel Jones, Adam Gilchrist, Isa Guha, Mark Waugh, Allan Border, Mike Hussey and Michael Vaughan behind the microphone.
Fox Sports will broadcast every international men's and women's match as well both Big Bash Leagues as part of a new $1.182 billion broadcast deal which has also seen Channel Seven take over free-to-air rights from the Nine and Ten networks.
Before Perry and Healy appear behind the microphone, they’ll be in the thick of the action on the field when Australia meet New Zealand in the three-match Commonwealth Bank T20 INTL series starting September 29 at North Sydney Oval.
Earlier this month, Fox Sports announced Australia's one-day series against South Africa would create national broadcasting history, with the opening match to mark the first live sport broadcast in 4K resolution.
Foxtel will launch its dedicated 4K channel in October, but the showpiece launch will be the broadcast of the November 4 ODI at Perth Stadium.
