Pay-television broadcaster Sky is considering making the 2019 Cricket World Cup final available free-to-air in the UK.
Speaking to the UK public broadcaster, the BBC, rights-holder International Cricket Council’s chief executive David Richardson said he was hopeful that “something can be arranged in that regard” to maximise audience for the showpiece event.
The pay-television broadcaster could make the match available online or partner with a terrestrial channel.
The final will be on July 14 at the Lord’s in London.
The Cricket Word Cup, which began on May 30, is being held in England and Wales.
