Cricket South Africa has concluded a deal with the SABC to broadcast the upcoming International Tour against Pakistan.  

The agreement is similar to that of the recent New Zealand series. 

This means that the three Sunfoil Test matches will not be covered live, while the KFC T20 series and Momentum ODI Series will have live ball-by-ball coverage.  

For the Test series,  however, although it’s still not ball-by-ball coverage, fans will see an increase in coverage. 

SABC will show two blocks of footage on a daily basis during the Test series.  This will comprise a broadcast in the afternoon which will contain a mixture of highlights and live coverage. There will also be an extensive highlights package in the evening. Over and above this, there will also be live crossings on SABC 3 during the day for updates. 

“Although we could not reach an agreement on live ball-by-ball coverage of the Sunfoil Test Series, we are satisfied that there is an increase in coverage compared to the New Zealand series,” explained CSA Commercial Manager, Marc Jury.  

“With the Pakistan series being the last home international series of the 2012/2013 season, we will definitely be looking at how best to manage our free to air broadcast rights going forward to ensure that all South Africans are able to watch the Proteas when playing at home,” added Jury.
