Fairfax Radio Network’s commentary team of cricket greats welcomes Glenn McGrath and former Australian fast bowler Carl Rackemann.

Fairfax Radio Network has a five year broadcast rights agreement for the Australian cricket seasons that delivers the most comprehensive radio broadcast coverage of live cricket in Australia.

McGrath and Rackemann join Fairfax Radio Network’s expert commentary team of former Australian skipper Ian Chappell, former Test and one-day run-machine Dean Jones, former Test and one-day international star Damien Fleming, former Australian all-rounder Greg Matthews, former England captain John Emburey and former Australian coach Mickey Arthur.

Rackemann, who made his Fairfax Radio Network commentary debut in the Australia-England one-day international at the Gabba last summer, will have a more prominent role with the Fairfax Radio Network team in 2014-15, commentating on many Big Bash League games, including all Brisbane Heat matches at the Gabba, and a selection of international fixtures on the eastern seaboard.

The ball-by-ball coverage across all forms of the game will be anchored by broadcasting icon Tim Lane, Bruce Eva, head of Fairfax Radio Cricket and the doyen of English commentators Henry Blofeld.

“If our listeners thought Fairfax Radio’s summer of cricket coverage was captivating in its inaugural year, this season it will be even stronger with the addition of Glenn McGrath to our team. We are thrilled with the depth of experience and talent of our commentary team, which makes our network a true cricket destination,” Eva said.

Fairfax Radio Network’s 2014-15 cricket coverage begins with the Australia vs South Africa International T20 match on November 5, 2014 at the Adelaide Oval and will cover the entire cricket season.

Year two of this landmark five year broadcast deal will see Fairfax Radio Network broadcast the four Test matches (Australia vs India), all One Day Internationals, Big Bash League (BBL) and International T20 matches, providing sports fans unprecedented access to live cricket.  Fairfax Radio Network will have the most comprehensive live coverage on radio, broadcasting all formats of the game.

For the summer ahead, Australia will be aiming to improve its No. 2 ranking in Test cricket, and begin its preparations for the Cricket World Cup in 2015. Australia will play South Africa in three T20s and five one-day internationals, India for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in a four Test series, and then England and India in a one-day international Tri-Series.
