Episode notes

Eoin Connolly is joined by SportsPro news editor Tom Bassam and features editor Sam Carp to unpack one of 2022’s biggest deals so far. 

They discuss a bumper set of media rights sales for cricket’s Indian Premier League, with Disney’s Star retaining traditional TV coverage as Reliance and Paramount’s Viacom18 venture swoops in for digital rights. With over $6 billion on the board, they examine a changed picture for cricket and Indian sport. 

They also reflect on the first weekend of LIV Golf and ask whether the ATP’s latest reforms will help head off a rebel threat in tennis.
