Australian board signs big money broadcast deal

7:02 pm on 4 June 2013

Cricket Australia has announced a new broadcast deal worth $712 million with Channels Nine and Ten.

Collectively, the board's domestic and international rights to telecast cricket for the next five years add up to more than a billion dollars.

Cricket Australia's overall broadcast revenue figure could go even higher with extra cash from foreign broadcast deals, overseas tours, Champions League Twenty20, CA's share of ICC events income from TV or radio and new digital and domestic cricket deals.
