The agreement with ESPN Star Sports will run for a period of four years, allowing South African cricket to be watched in the sub-continent. The deal, known to be worth around $24.75 million, will start on Sept 2003 and run until 2007.
The contract period will included high-profile tours by England, Australia and India. It will include all Tests and One-day Internationals played during that period with the exception of Pakistan's tour in February 2007.
