TalkSport has secured the free-to-air radio broadcast rights for the England cricket team’s forthcoming tours of Sri Lanka and the West Indies, after outbidding the BBC Radio who have held the rights for 13 years.
Scott Taunton, chief executive of Wireless Group Limited, commented “Winning these prestigious rights is a great victory for TalkSport and its first-class coverage. England’s overseas tours are sure to lure large audiences of fans as we cement TalkSport’s position as the fans’ favourite for sporting news, analysis and live coverage. I’m delighted that we will be with England fans for every ball of the day throughout these winter tours, with our own expert line-up of cricketing stars.”
The rights cover all the Test matches, ODIs and T20 internationals from each tour with the first game an ODI against Sri Lanka on October 10th.
