Crocmedia today announced a new broadcast radio rights partnership for the Australian cricket team’s upcoming tour in India and the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup in England and Wales.
Crocmedia will have rights to broadcast five One Day International (ODI) matches and two T20 matches from the 2019 Australian tour of India, as well as the 2019 ICC World Cup from England and Wales on 1116 SEN, 1377 SEN+ and DAB+ platforms, plus exclusively for sporting fans in Adelaide on 1629 SEN SA.
The deals, secured with Sports Flashes, India’s fastest growing multi sports, multi-languages digital content platform, follows SEN’s successful summer of cricket which saw the network exclusively cover all 59 BBL matches as well as Australia’s Test series matches against both India and Sri Lanka through its rights deal with Cricket Australia.
Executive Director of Crocmedia, Chris Giannopoulos says, “We were thrilled to add cricket to our summer sports line-up this year – headed by our Chief Sports Caller Gerard Whateley - who also led our coverage of the much-discussed Aussies’ 2018 tour of South Africa.
“Cricket on the radio is part of the fabric of the Australian sporting culture and we look forward to expanding our live coverage through the upcoming Aussie tour in India and the ICC Cricket World Cup.”
