SABC loses broadcasting rights of the Cricket World Cup

The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) will no longer air any live matches during the rest of the Cricket World Cup. The national broadcaster has just revealed their updated schedule which indicated the remaining matches would be split between delayed TV broadcasts and radio-only live coverage.

South Africa’s first two matches against England and Bangladesh were shown live on SABC 3, with the remainder of their games (from the India clash) only broadcast live on Radio 2000 and some games delayed on SABC 3.

The Proteas’ next match is against Afghanistan in Cardiff with SABC 3 to air a delayed broadcast from 09:30 on Sunday.

All matches from the showpiece event in England and Wales will be broadcast live on SuperSport TV.
