In the 35th year of cricket on the Nine Network, Wide World of Sports will broadcast Australia's five-game VB One Day International Tour of England live nationwide.
Australia, the current ODI world number one team, will play world number four England in five matches over 12 days.
Captain Michael Clarke's team will be bolstered by experienced campaigner Brett Lee and young speed machines Patrick Cummins and James Pattinson. Explosive opener David Warner will partner star all-rounder Shane Watson at the top of the Australian batting order.
England will be looking to strike bowler James Anderson and spinner Graeme Swann to shine for their in-form captain Alastair Cook, who will be without superstar Kevin Pietersen after his retirement from ODI and Twenty20 cricket.
Lord's, the spiritual home of cricket in England, will host the opening match between England and Australia on Friday night. The live broadcast of that match will commence straight after the Brisbane Broncos-Cronulla Sharks NRL clash.
All other matches in the series will be broadcast live nationwide in their entirety.
Tim Gilbert, along with Wide World of Sports cricket commentators Ian Healy and Mark Taylor, will host the VB ODI Tour of England on the Nine Network.
