Sky reportedly refuse to meet the Indian cricket board's demands for television coverage, which means that the network's presenters will not be broadcasting from India for England's four-Test series tour.

Sky have reportedly refused to allow presenters to travel to India for England's Test tour against the Asian nation following a dispute with the country's cricket board.

The likes of Sir Ian Botham, Nasser Hussain and Mike Atherton will not be broadcasting from India after Sky decided against meeting the Indian cricket board's (BCCI) demands of £500,000 for facility costs, according to the Daily Mail.

Instead of travelling to Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Nagpur and Kolkata for the four-Test series, the Sky team are believed to be planning to watch pictures from a studio in Isleworth and give their expert analysis.

The decision not to broadcast coverage from India will make it the first time in 20 years that viewers have not had English analysis from presenters and commentators from inside the ground.
