What cricket matches are on TV this week? Your sporting TV guide December 13-19

The second Test of the Ashes starts on Thursday, with England looking to level up the series after losing the first Test. Here is Planet Sport's TV guide for the week ahead in the world of cricket.

Australia won the first Test by a massive nine wickets as they continued their 35-year dominance over England at the Gabba. Thursday's second Test is a day/night match at Adelaide, and England fans will be looking for a response.

The pressure is now on England to fightback in Adelaide if they are to make steps towards claiming the Ashes in Australia for the first time since 2010/11.

England bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad were not used in Brisbane; they are expecting to return and hopefully take advantage of the pink ball.
