MUMBAI: ITW Consulting, an India-based sports management company, has acquired some exclusive rights from Sony Pictures Networks India Private Limited -- the sole media rights holder of the Sri Lanka Cricket Series 2017. The deal involves title rights, on-ground and in-stadia advertising rights for all the cricket matches played during the above two series.

With these rights, ITW Consulting covered five ODIs and one test match under Sri Lanka v/s Zimbabwe series and also India's tour Sri Lanka for three test matches, five ODIs and one T20 under Sri Lanka v/s India Series from 23 July till 6 September 2017, respectively.

Virat Kohli-led Indian team is scheduled to reach Sri Lankan capital Colombo on 19 July. They are likely to play a warm-up match on 21 & 22 July. The first test will be played at Pallekele between 26 & 30 July. The action will then shift to Galle for the second test, which is scheduled to be played between 4 & 8 August. SSC, Colombo will host the third test from 12 August. The tour continues with an ODI series between 24 August & 3 September, where the two teams will play a five-match series, followed by a T20I on 6 September.

Commenting on the deal, ITW Consulting director M S Muralidharan (a Global Sports Commerce affiliate) said, “We are one of the new generation companies and are delighted to partner with Sony Pictures Networks India (SPN) for these two series. With nearly 15 matches scheduled over the series, we are sure that we will be able to build strong and strategic brand associations that will be fruitful for both, the brands and cricket fans.” “At ITW, we are bringing in innovative technologies in cricket and other sports to ensure fans are engaged throughout the match with a crowd facing interactive display system”, he added.

Commenting on the deal, ITW Consulting co-founder Bhairav Shanth said, “This series has received an overwhelming response from the market. Brands see this as an excellent alternate medium with rationale pricing, delivering perfect ROI. Categories such as telecom network, automobiles, sports gear along with handset have locked in their participation. Most of our key slots have been closed a month before the start of the series. We will shortly be making the title sponsor announcement for the India series along with the central on-ground partners of the series.”

Commenting on the association, Sony Pictures Networks India (SPN) president, distribution and sports business Rajesh Kaul said, “Viewers are looking forward to the series as this is the Indian cricket team’s first full tour (Tests, ODIs and a T20) of Sri Lanka in three years. In addition to this, advertisers are also aware of the visibility that is ensured through the duration of the tournament, giving brands a wider reach.”

The 45-day long cricket extravaganza will reach a wide Indian, Sri Lankan and global audience cheering for the powerhouses and superstars of the likes of Angelo Mathews, Rangana Herath, Lasith Malinga as well as their Indian counterparts like Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Ravi Ashwin amongst others. The series will be telecast by the official live broadcasting partner, Sony Pictures Networks India on Sony SIX and TEN 3 channels and will be livestreamed on SonyLIV.
