BBC lands online Ashes highlights
BBC Sport website
BBC Sport has secured the rights to show Ashes video highlights online, shortly after play finishes each day.

A 10-minute package of key moments will be available to UK users each day at bbc.co.uk/cricket, and will stay on the website for the whole Test series.

"The Ashes will be going on while most people in the UK are asleep," said BBC Sport Interactive editor Ben Gallop.

"So it's great that fans will be able to watch the best of the action on their desktops every morning."

Gallop added: "BBC Sport's aim is to allow people to follow the series whenever and wherever they might be - and this broadband video service adds to our round-the-clock coverage."

Ashes highlights will also be on BBC TV, firstly on interactive television, via the red button, from 2200 GMT, and then after 2300 GMT on BBC TWO, where the show will also look forward to the next day's play.

And the series marks the first comprehensive cricket action on BBC television in seven years, though England's one-day match against Ireland in June was shown on BBC Northern Ireland and the BBC website.

Meanwhile, BBC Test Match Special will provide live ball-by-ball audio coverage on Radio Four LW, Five Live Sports Extra and online to UK users.

And there will also be an Ashes podcast, reviewing the day's action, for fans to download.
