One thought on “Tbko Cricket Podcast 3”
The delisting of Test Cricket in 1998 was not a move to enable ECB to sell all cricket to Sky.
The combined Channel 4/Sky deals from 1999 to 2005 were worth, on average £30m pa to the game, double the previous BBC/Sky deal. This financial injection allowed ECB under Lord MacLaurin to develop central contracts, a move, amongst others, that enabled the England team to become a famous Ashes winning team in 2005. The handshake to keep Test Cricket largely on free to air TV (Ian MacLaurin/ Chris Smith) was ignored by the next regime when Giles Clarke led negotiations.
