Jeff Foulser, Chairman of Sunset+Vine, commented: “Over the last four years the ICC and Sunset+Vine have been together on a journey to set the bar in cricket broadcasting and to deliver a truly world-class product for broadcasters and cricket fans. ICC TV was successfully established – a ground breaking model for how a governing body and production company can collaborate. The partnership has allowed us to be more ambitious, more adventurous and more creative. This approach will see new viewers converted to this magnificent sport through engaging and dynamic coverage. We are truly excited by the opportunity.”
