Fox and nine Sports eye joint Cricket Australia rights swoop

The business community, and News Corp, the media giant that owns the Fox Sports Australia of pay-television, are in talks about mounting a concerted bid for cricket faith.

Even though Cricket Australia has yet to establish its rights it has shipped out an information pack and agreements to broadcast partners.

Based on reports in Australia, both News Corp and Nine have shared pre-tax contracts worth involving A$ 130 million and A$ 150 million per year and five including the popular Big Bash league.  

The rights are held by nine to Australia’s home matches in a five-year deal value A$ 490 million while rival Ten revealed the BBL beneath a A$ 100-million contract that expired, that expires following the 2017-18 season.
