From this week the ABC is rebranding its sports coverage under the ABC SPORT banner which sees a renaming of its digital ABC Grandstand station and ABC Grandstand social media accounts to ABC SPORT.
The ‘voice of cricket’, Jim Maxwell, will once again lead this summer’s ABC cricket coverage starting with the Australia vs India One Day Internationals on 27 November.
It will be Jim Maxwell’s 44th year in the cricket commentary box and this year he will be joined by the regular line up of local ABC Sports presenters and invited guest commentators including former Australian captains Alex Blackwell and Ian Chappell.
Jim said he was looking forward to the return of test cricket in Australia after an absence of almost 12 months. “Seeing two of the great cricket rivals play each other here in Australia is something to get excited about, especially after what we’ve all been through this year.”
Live and commercial-free coverage of the Australia vs India One Day Internationals, T20s and Test Matches will be broadcast on ABC Radio (AM/FM); on Digital Radio on the re-named ABC SPORT station, formerly ABC Grandstand, and streamed via the ABC listen app.
