Ten Sports now acquires South Africa, Zimbabwe cricket rights

Following two new acquisitions – South Africa and Zimbabwe – half the Test playing cricketing nations of the world will showcase their skills live and exclusive only on Ten Sports. Taj Television Limited, owners of Ten Sports, has announced it has won telecast rights of all international cricket matches played in South Africa and Zimbabwe for markets in Asia, including India and Pakistan, and the Middle East.

Already holding the rights for all international cricket played in Pakistan, Sri Lanka and West Indies, with these new acquisitions Ten Sports will feature live action from half the cricketing world.

Announcing this, Chris McDonald, CEO, Taj Television, said, “By acquiring the telecast rights for South Africa and Zimbabwe, Ten Sports has significantly added to its broadcast of the world’s best live cricket action. Our line-up of international cricket now extends through the end of the decade.”

McDonald added, “No other channel delivers the amount and quality of cricket that Ten Sports does. And together with our top-class football, hockey, golf and tennis properties, we have ensured that our viewers will continue to enjoy the best of world sport.”

Starting with the ongoing South Africa-Pakistan series, Ten Sports features nine tours over the next nine months, including India’s tour of Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.

South Africa’s busy season after their tour of Pakistan includes a trip by New Zealand (November-December 2007), and by the West Indies soon after (December 2007 to February 2008).
