In October and November 2016, Sky Sports were granted exclusive behind the scenes access to the England Women’s Cricket team, giving us an insight into tour life as they travelled to Jamaica, Abu Dhabi and Sri Lanka in their quest for World Cup qualification points.
‘England Women on Tour’ profiles the highs and lows of Heather Knight’s team both on and off the pitch revealing what it’s like to be in the England dressing room when players make debuts and get injured, as well as introducing us to some tour traditions.
We are also given a taste of what it’s like to be the head coach of the England team, as Mark Robinson shares knowledge on team selection and the challenges he faces building a team for the future. Ultimately the team had one goal; to qualify for the ICC World Cup 2017 in England.
You can watch the hour-long programme on Christmas Day, Sky Sports 2 at 4pm. Then again on Boxing Day on Sky Sports Mix at 4pm.
