Deals in that period included tie-ups with Sky in the UK and Ireland, SuperSport in Sub-Saharan Africa, Willow TV in North America, and Foxtel in Australia.

Since those tie-ups ended, the PCB has been selling rights on a short-term basis internationally, for series such as New Zealand’s visit (encompassing five Twenty20s) in April. It sold rights initially to Pakistani media outlets ARY Digital and TransGroup International, who then distributed them amongst networks worldwide.

Domestically, that series was covered by a range of Pakistani networks, after ARY also snapped up those rights.

In January, the PCB claimed that the sale of domestic live streaming rights for the 2024 and 2025 editions of its domestic top-tier Pakistan Super League competition saw a 113% increase in value compared to the 2022-23 cycle. Marketing platform Walee Technologies secured that package.

Pakistan’s men’s side are currently taking part in the 2024 ICC Twenty20 World Cup in the Caribbean and US, losing to the latter team in a major upset yesterday (June 6).
