“So, we’re excited to announce this new ICC deal which gives cricket fans the chance to catch the best highlights clips from all the big games in an exciting short package, available to watch on-demand at a time that’s convenient to the viewer.

“The ability to watch sports content on-demand is one of the key differences between streaming and traditional television viewing, which makes this new deal an attractive offering to Spark Sport subscribers.”  

The new ICC deal is in addition to the landmark deal with New Zealand Cricket, announced recently, which cements Spark Sport’s place as a significant player in New Zealand’s sports viewing landscape, offering viewers a range of premium domestic and international sporting events over Spark Sport at an affordable price and across an array of devices.
