Kate Cross to join Vitality Blast stream coverage
Kate will line up alongside Graham Onions and host Hugh Ferris in a new-look streaming setup for Vitality Blast games this season
Lancashire and England star Kate Cross is set to be part of an all-new punditry team for Lancashire Lightning’s Vitality Blast opener tomorrow (27 August).
Cross, who also stars on the Club’s podcast, will be joined by Graham Onions and host Hugh Ferris at Emirates Riverside tomorrow for the highly-anticipated opener against Durham. The Club will be using the ever-excellent BBC Radio Lancashire commentary throughout the game, headed up by Scott Read.
The stream - which is open to all and broadcast across YouTube, Facebook and via the Club’s website – will be further enhanced from the improvements for this year’s Bob Willis Trophy.
Cross and Onions will give their thoughts on proceedings before and after play, while there will also be in-play highlights and live reaction with Lancashire players.
Coverage from Emirates Riverside starts from around 2:10pm tomorrow ahead of a scheduled 2:30pm start.
Cross said: “I’m really excited to be involved in the coverage of Lancashire Lightning this season, which will work around my cricket commitments at domestic and international level this summer.
“Last year I enjoyed getting involved with some media work, including working on the Ashes Test at Emirates Old Trafford for BBC Sport, and I’m looking forward to adding this to my portfolio.”
Lancashire will be offering a stream from selected Vitality Blast matches this season. Games on Sky Sports cannot be streamed by Clubs due to broadcasting rights.
Memberships for Vitality Blast 2021 are now on sale from £35, allowing access to all Lancashire Lightning home games next season.
