Cricket Australia has secured a landmark cope. With all fifty-nine fits of this season’s WBBL opposition to be broadcast on tv for the primary time.
Foxtel, the pay-TV provider, broadcasts all the games live, while the free broadcaster Channel Seven broadcasts 24 games. Last season, 36 games were televised and the rest of the games were streamed online.
The original plan was to broadcast 47 games that season, but CA was able to stream all of them live. In the first year of the WBBL, only 10 games were broadcast on television.
But the tournament will then move to Adelaide, Perth, and Mackay in Queensland as a rolling carnival. With the final venues still closed. Due to border closures, there will be no regular-season games for New South Wales, Victoria, or ACT this season.
The tournament begins on October 14 with Sydney Thunder.
“The Weber WBBL is Australia’s highest rating sporting league for women and the world’s best cricket league for women. We owe it to our players and loyal fans to deliver a full schedule. And today’s announcement further strengthens this” Alistair Dobson, the BBL general manager, said.
“At the same time, to also announce a landmark broadcast footprint is amazing. Fans can now watch every game on TV. Ensuring that our passionate supporters will have access to world-class cricket despite the challenges of the pandemic.”
Matches in Perth will be playing at Lilac Hill and the WACA. While Karen Rolton Oval and Adelaide Oval will host matches in Adelaide. There will be nine matches scheduled at Great Barrier Reef Arena in Mackay in Queensland at the end of the tournament.
After the ground successfully hosted three women`s ODIs between Australia and India recently. There are no matches schedules in Brisbane or the Gold Coast.
