CRICKET: WICB appeals for live coverage of WI, New Zealand series

Published: Thursday December 5, 2013 | 10:36 am Comments 0

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) is appealing to regional broadcasters to get the TV broadcast rights for the current Test and One Day International series between West Indies and New Zealand.

A statement from the WICB said it was making the call because fans have been complaining that they are disheartened by not being able to see the West Indies team play against New Zealand.

The WICB says when the regional side plays at home, a deal with TAJ TV ensures that the television broadcast is provided to the Caribbean Media Corporation’s free-to-air partners around the region.

However, the board says it does not own the broadcast rights for the current series and is hoping TV companies would intervene.

The first of three test matches between West Indies and New Zealand are now taking place in Dunedin.

The two sides are also due to play five One-Day International matches and two Twenty20 games.
