The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has today awarded exclusive multimedia rights to ESPN Caribbean in a five-year partnership deal.

The agreement will see ESPN broadcast all international and domestic cricket matches from England and Wales live across the Caribbean.

The partnership will cover England men’s Tests matches against Pakistan, this summers visit of Australia plus India’s tour of five Tests, three ODIs and three T20s.

Scott McGlone, ESPN International’s Director of Programming, said: “We are pleased to announce our first ever agreement with ECB in the Caribbean.  This agreement reinforces our commitment to providing fans in the region with high quality and locally relevant programming.”

ECB’s Chief Commercial Officer, Sanjay Patel, commented: “Today’s announcement is good news for Caribbean cricket fans. It means they can enjoy all the action from our domestic and international playing programme across a variety of different platforms – and will help give our national men’s and women’s teams, and our county teams an even greater global profile.”
