There are two issues that could be critical to Cricket on TV:

If Cricket Australia are smart they will sell different packages. Tests, ODIs and T20 (domestic and international). Ten/ONE would be interested in T20 package to go with their IPL and Champions League rights. Fox will play some part. And I guess Nine could have tests. All parties happy, and as well as more money from more broadcasters.

When Nine renewed their broadcast deal in 2005, it was for 2006 to 2013. Nine had first and last rights in those negotiations. Does Nine still have first and last rights? And the Nine's rights don't end until 2013, not 2012 as has been implied on Mediaspy, and by The Sunday Telegraph.

I rwally think that Cricket Australia were scared of Nine as long as a Packer was there as they didn't want a repeat of WSC. So I reckon the process will be a little more open next time. Even with first and last right of refusal, splitting the rights will piss off Nine.

All major sports in US have multi-FTA broadcasters along with cable. It makes sense.

I thought the new rights commenced in Nov 2012? Hence for the 12-13 series?

I think ten might fight a bit hard for these rights. Considering the results of ONE I think this is something they need to lift One up a little bit. By 2013 it could become an exclusive to One.

Also does anyone know when the rights for overseas cricket is up? I.E can a network bid for the rights to games VS Australia overseas?

I don't know if networks would bid for series like South Africa, West Indies, New Zealand or Bangladesh vs Australia even though they certainly can.

Does the new rights deal cover the 2015 Cricket World Cup, which will be held in Australia? I can sense sponsorship conflicts ahead. Yahoo is the official internet partner of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Cricket World Cup, but it does not automatically mean Yahoo7 will be the local internet partner of the next tournament given Yahoo7 is half-owned by Seven Media Group. If Nine win the rights to broadcast the 2015 CWC I think it may demand that ninemsn be the internet partner.

I think the ICC's long term relationship with Yahoo trumps anything Nine would have to say, and I doubt they care - no one actually uses Yahoo anyway.

The Sunday Telegraph says today that Cricket Australia paid $40 million to the International Cricket Council for the local broadcast rights to the 2015 Cricket World Cup, to be held in Australia and New Zealand. The report says Seven, Nine, Ten and Foxtel bid directly to the ICC but were all outbid by CA, which wants to include the CWC in the next broadcast rights deal. I think it is interesting that CA is involved in the organisation of the tournament but still has to fork out its own money for the rights.

Cricket World Cup (mid February to late March 2015)would fit in nicely for Seven, right in between the 2015 Australian Open and the 2015 AFL Premiership. Does  CA buying the rights effectively rule out Seven getting the World Cup? Would Seven ever go for Australia's Summer of Cricket?

I think Seven only bidded for the Cricket World Cup to fill its sporting schedule with the AFL pre-season cup now on Fox Footy (they will share coverage of the grand final), and the ironman series now on Ten. Much like the way Nine bought the rights to last year's Rugby World Cup not because it was interested in rugby union, it paid the rights to Wallabies' home tests as an afterthought.
According to The Australian, Cricket Australia will reveal this week whether it did buy the rights, and what it is going to do with them.

Seven and Ten are reportedly interested to bid for the new cricket broadcast rights: http://www.theage.co...0821-24kpc.html
The possibility that the rights can be split certainly makes thing interesting. Seven has the rights to Australian Open tennis until 2014, so any one-day cricket or Twenty20 matches scheduled during the period will clash with the tennis. Seven has covered some international cricket before (1998 Australian tour of South Africa and the 2001 Ashes tour of England) but this is the first time Seven is genuinely interested in showing cricket matches held in Australia.
