Sportsbeat working with International Cricket Council ahead of busy summer

Sportsbeat is working with the International Cricket Council to deliver a range of editorial services ahead of a busy summer of cricket.

Ahead of the forthcoming ICC Champions Trophy and ICC Women’s World Cup, Sportsbeat staff were a key part of the #NissanTrophyTour, which visited all seven venues playing host to matches – Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Derby, Leicester, London and Taunton.

Text and video content was syndicated across regional and national media and created for internal channels, including social media.

Sportsbeat will provide the ICC with extensive coverage during the Cricket World Cup, with previews, features, reports and reaction from all 31 matches in the eight-team tournament, culminating with the final at Lord’s on July 23rd.

“It’s great to be working with the ICC to help deliver their content strategy ahead of what promises to be a hugely exciting summer of international cricket,” said editor-in-chief David Parsons.

“After a fortnight of interviews, the countdown is now firmly on for the opening match between England and India in Derby, with a busy schedule of squad announcements, interviews and preview content.”
