    Just when you thought you couldn’t dislike Sutherland and Cricket Australia anymore.

    My dear old Pop would be rolling in his grave, absolutely pathetic.

    that article does not say why the ABC is being excluded

    it also doesn't address how Crocmedia will be able to provide coverage in regional Australia where the ABC already provides coverage and Crocmedia currently doesn't

    methinks something stinks here

    Croc may outbid the ABC but a lot of regional listeners may miss out here and I dont see this as being in CAs best interest but hey, Sutherland does shit like this

    Sutherland only cares for dollars not the actual cricketing public who will miss out.

    Just f**k off now Sutherland.

    Jesus f**king Christ.

    Do CA have even the faintest f**king clue who their fans are?

    Sutherland can die in a f**king fire as far as I’m concerned. He’s an absolute cancer on the game, and his final 18 months have been nothing but f**k up after f**k up.

    Common sense:

    Australian cricket fans will continue to enjoy ball-by-ball ABC Radio commentary for all Australian Men's and Women's international matches up to 2024 following the signing of a six-year partnership with Cricket Australia.

    The agreement gives ABC Radio the rights to broadcast Men’s & Women’s international cricket and the WBBL on all platforms which include ABC local radio, ABC Grandstand Digital Radio, the ABC Listen app and ABC online at either abc.net.au/grandstand or cricket.com.au.

    The Managing Director of the ABC, Michelle Guthrie, said: "Cricket on ABC Radio is a big part of any Australian summer and I am really delighted we are continuing to forge a strong partnership with Cricket Australia to provide live commentary to as many Australians as possible. I am also pleased ABC Radio will be the source of women’s cricket, with all matches of Women’s International and WBBL cricket broadcast live on one of our platforms which is a big win for audiences.”

    CEO of Cricket Australia, James Sutherland, said: "“We are excited to announce our new radio rights deal with the ABC, which will see our proud and longstanding partnership continue for the next six years.

    “Radio has long been an important part of how people enjoy cricket in Australia over the summer, and the breadth and depth of our radio agreements ensures that people will be able to tune in to the cricket action regardless of where they are.

    “It is worth highlighting the significant coverage the ABC will provide to women’s cricket over this period, with every Women’s International and WBBL match to be broadcast, effectively making the ABC the radio home of women’s cricket.”
