Nine Network has announced that it is set to broadcast the 2022 T20 World Cup as well as the 2023 One-Day World Cup in a new deal.
The platform will broadcast every Australian game plus other big match-ups in both of the tournaments live and free-to-air.
Nine’s Director of Sport, Brent Williams, commented: “Any cricket World Cup is a premium event on the international calendar and we’re excited to be the free-to-air home of the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia and the 2023 World Cup which will be held in India.
“Nine has a long and proud history with cricket and we look forward to that continuing with all Australian and key matches of these prestigious events being broadcast across Nine’s platforms.”
However, the women’s ODI World Cup that begins in March will be on Foxtel and Kayo channels only, with no traditional free-to-air broadcaster.
Nine lost its rights to stream the Australian summer of cricket in April 2018 when the two companies signed a A$1.182 billion deal with Cricket Australia, which is currently in the fourth of its six-year term.
The T-20 Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 begins on 22 October this year with Group A being revealed as Sri Lanka vs Namibia, and Group B with West Indies against Scotland.
