England v Kiwis on free to air.

ENGLAND'S Cricket World Cup final showdown with New Zealand will be screened free to air on Channel 4 and More 4, TV bosses have announced.

Channel 4 have struck a deal with Sky Sports, which holds the UK broadcast rights for the tournament, to also show the match at Lord's and will combine it with its live coverage of the Formula 1 British Grand Prix.

Channel 4 CEO Alex Mahon said: "This is fantastic news for cricket fans and the nation.

"This Sunday is a massive day for British sport with England tantalisingly close to lifting the Cricket World Cup for the first time and Lewis Hamilton setting his sights on his seventh win at Silverstone - all live on Channel 4."

Channel 4 will carry Sky's coverage of the cricket from 9am, but the game will move to More 4 at 1.15pm as Formula 1 takes over before returning after the race.
