Fox Sports has confirmed Shane Warne will be joining them for their cricket commentary next summer.

Warne, who was part of Channel 9's team before losing the cricket rights, has migrated to Fox Sports, joining the likes of Adam Gilchrist and Mark Waugh.

"I am absolutely delighted to be joining the amazing team that FOX SPORTS has put together," he said.

"It’s a significant time for Australian cricket, and to have a team like this covering the game is really important. And to be part of the team, and part of what lies ahead, is something I’m really excited about.

"For fans to have their own cricket channel, backed by a great team FOX has built, is going to revolutionise coverage in Australia. It’s an exciting time for the game and I can’t wait to be part of it."

Fox Sports chief executive Patrick Delany said the acquisition of Warne was huge.

“Warnie is the perfect person to help lead the biggest cricket shake-up in history," he said.

"An incredible player and now one of the most popular commentators in the game. A straight shooter, with an astute cricket mind who says it how he sees it."

Foxtel and Seven nabbed the cricket right for the next six years on a massive $1.2 billion deal in April.
