Cricket South Africa’s upcoming T20 Challenge will be broadcast abroad, after CSA sold the broadcast rights to three international networks.
Star India, Fox Sports (Australia) and Willow TV (North America) acquired the rights to broadcast all 17 matches of the domestic tournament, which takes place in Durban from 19-28 February.
This year’s tournament, which will be aired locally on SuperSport, will also see the Proteas available for selection alongside emerging domestic cricketers, with six franchises competing for the T20 title.
Rebecca McCloy, Foxtel’s Director of Acquisitions and Sports Partnerships, said: “We have just experienced a fantastic summer of cricket in Australia with audiences for our test series and domestic T20 series reaching new records. Cricket fans can’t get enough, and we are incredibly pleased to bring the CSA T20 Challenge series to audiences in Australia.”
Starting on Friday, the entire tournament will take place in a bio-secure environment at Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium in Durban.
