It’s great news that we’ve extended our audio rights partnership with the ICC for another four years. We know from our 50+ years of broadcasting Men’s and Women’s world tournaments that these are events that really resonate with audiences and it’s brilliant that our new deal begins with England’s defence of their Men’s T20 World Cup title. Along with our partnerships with the England and Wales Cricket Board, Cricket Australia and other organisations around the world we have an amazing portfolio of live cricket for listeners to enjoy.
