SEN and SENZ to call Ashes in commercial radio first

SEN - Sports Entertainment Network

“It is an honour for the entire SEN Cricket team to call the Ashes.”

SEN Cricket has announced exclusive commercial audio rights for the upcoming Ashes series between England and Australia. 

Led by Adam Collins, SEN will have a commentary team live on the ground in England to call every ball of the match-up. The series is billed as a battle between Brendon McCullum’s “Baz Ball” and a Pat Cummins led Australian team searching for a first Ashes win on English soil since 2001. 

The broadcast will air on almost 60 SEN and SENZ stations including SEN 1116am, SEN 1170am, SENQ 693am, SEN SA 1629am, SENZ Auckland 1476am, SENZ Christchurch 1260am and more. 

Sports Entertainment Network CEO Craig Hutchison said: “It is an honour for the entire SEN Cricket team to call the Ashes. We’ve travelled with the Australian team to series in Pakistan and India and are committed to bringing cricket fans the best coverage live from in venues and across our station, SEN app and social channels.

“And what a series it will be. SENZ’s own Baz McCullum has reinvented this England team and arguably Test cricket itself – and the tactical battle against a seasoned and gifted Australian team that has taken all before it will be fascinating.

“We can’t wait for the first ball of this gripping series on June 16 and will be there to share every moment, ball by ball, live from in venue for our audiences who’ve come to know one thing: we’ll be there.”

SEN and SENZ will also broadcast the ICC World Test Championship Final between Australia and India in England later this year.
