(Pocket-lint) - Sky has announced that the Cricket World Cup final will be available to watch live on a free-to-air channel, now that England has secured its place in the match.

It has partnered with Channel 4, which will host live coverage on terrestrial TV for the main part. Coverage will then switch to More4 when the British Grand Prix starts. Sky will also still show the match on its own, dedicated Sky Sports channel.

Channel 4 has shown highlights of each match during the tournament, but this will be its first live match.

The final will be held at Lords on Sunday 14 July and will be battled by New Zealand and England, after the latter walloped Australia in their semi.

You will be able to watch the match on Sky Sports, either through a Sky Q or Sky+ box, or via Now TV. Or free on Freeview through Channel 4/More 4.

Sky subscribers can also watch live or follow ball-by-ball commentary on the Sky Sports mobile app.

"Our aim has always been to celebrate what is a 'once in a generation' moment of a home team in a big final on home soil. We will make the match available to everyone so the whole country can be part of a rare and special big sporting moment," said Sky's UK chief executive, Stephen van Rooyen.
