ICC Media Rights and Broadcast Manager Aarti Singh Dabas says, “The ICC already has a long-standing relationship with SNTV and Thomson Reuters.

These partnerships will ensure that news broadcasters and, through them, cricket fans around the world will have access to match highlights and other event news.”

SNTV editor Andy Parkinson said, “It’s great news that SNTV is once again working closely with the ICC to ensure the best possible coverage of the ICC World Twenty20 2010 in the West Indies.”
