The multi-year deal sees every ball broadcast on the channel
BT Sport has agreed a multi-year deal to broadcast the Hero Caribbean Premier League.
The T20 cricket tournament gets underway on 26 August, and has world-famous players such as Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Faf du Plessis, and Mohammed Amir taking part. Guyana Amazon Warriors face reigning champions Trinbago Knight Riders at 3pm tomorrow in the opening match.
The CPL joins BT Sport’s agreement to show all domestic and international cricket from the West Indies, as well as its agreement to air New Zealand men’s and women’s home internationals.
Rachel Knight, director of sports rights, BT Sport, said: “BT Sport’s cricket line-up continues to grow as we show more world-class cricket to fans across the UK. The Caribbean Premier League will kick off an exciting period for cricket lovers on BT Sport which in early 2022 includes exclusively live coverage of England’s tour of the West Indies.”
