Cricket World Cup final “could go free-to-air”

Talks reportedly taking place regarding the final at Lord's on 14th July

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has said the World Cup final could go free-to-air.

ICC chief executive David Richardson announced that talks were taking place regarding the final at Lord’s on 14th July.

Sky will show the event live, while Channel 4 and the BBC Sport website will host highlights and clips.

“I know that the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) and the local organising committee are working with the Sky people to try to maximise the reach for the match,” said Richardson. “We are hopeful that something can be arranged in that regard.”

Having faced criticism for delays in showing highlights, Channel 4 reassured that it plans to broadcast England highlights “as early as possible.”
