Surrey and Yorkshire County Cricket Clubs are teaming up to live stream the match between the two clubs at North Marine Road, Scarborough next week, using four cameras.

The ground-breaking partnership has been made possible by broadcaster Sky Sports, who own the rights to broadcast all cricket played in England, giving special permission for the one-off broadcast to go ahead.

As well as the Surrey and Yorkshire websites, the game will also be broadcast on Sky Sports Digital.

The production efforts will be shared between the two counties, with a special commentary team being put together for the occasion set to feature popular Surrey commentators Mark Church and Johnny Barran as well as a host of well known names from the past, present and futures of both counties. The game will still be covered ball by ball on BBC radio, as ever.

Thus far in 2018, every Surrey CCC home game has been streamed on the club website, kiaoval.com, using two fixed cameras, one at each end of the ground. Across the 15 days of domestic cricket the ground has hosted so far, well over 2,000,000 minutes have already been watched.

Surrey CCC Chief Executive Richard Gould said: “It’s tremendously exciting to be able to work alongside Yorkshire and the ECB to put on a ‘first’ in English domestic cricket.

“The regular stream provided for all Surrey home matches is proving very popular indeed and so to be able to take it to the next level like this is fantastic, both for the county game and for Surrey fans who are unable to make it up to Scarborough.

“I would like to thank Yorkshire CCC, Sky Sports and the ECB for all their work in creating this unique partnership and very much look forward to enjoying the results at the end of this month.”
