Test action will go mobile
Hutchison Telecommunications has signed an agreement to sponsor the Australian Cricket Board for five years.
The company will provide exclusive multi-media Test cricket content through its mobile telephone network, including instant replays, highlights, interviews and statistics.
Hutchison supplants Ansett Australia in the role, after the latter paid $A25m for naming rights to the domestic series for five years, and did not disclose the amount it had agreed to pay.
The spectrum required for the third-generation mobile telephone service will not be available until October 2002
