BT Sport to broadcast Hero Caribbean Premier League cricket
BT Sport has secured a multi-year agreement to broadcast every ball of the 2021 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL). The three-week tournament which kicks off today (26 August), will see West Indies stars including Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran and Kieron Pollard, face off against each other.
Cricket fans will be able to catch a host of international talent at the CPL with former South African captain Faf du Plessis, New Zealand batsman Glenn Phillips, English all-rounder Ravi Bopara and Pakistan fast bowler Mohammed Amir featuring.
The broadcast adds to BT Sport’s multi-year agreement to broadcast all domestic and international cricket from the West Indies; South Africa, Australia and Pakistan have already toured the Caribbean this summer.
Rachel Knight, director of sports rights, BT Sport, said: “BT Sport’s cricket line-up continues to grow as we show more world-class cricket to fans across the UK. The Caribbean Premier League will kick off an exciting period for cricket lovers on BT Sport which in early 2022 includes exclusively live coverage of England’s tour of the West Indies.”
