SABC again fails to broadcast South Africa's international cricket tour; can't secure broadcasting rights for Proteas' international tour to England and Wales.


The SABC has announced that it has once again failed to secure the broadcasting rights for yet another South African cricket tour, this time the outbound cricket tour of the Proteas to England and Wales starting Wednesday 24 May.

In another failure from the South African Broadcasting Corporation in terms of its barely there sports coverage on television when it comes to sports of national importance, the SABC yet again won't be providing broadcasting coverage and says it was unable to secure the rights.

The Proteas' tour to England consists of three ODI's, three T20's and four test matches that will all be broadcast live on the SuperSport channels on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform.

Besides that there is also the 2017 ICC Champions Tropy cricket tournament taking place between 1 and 18 June.
