“We’re also sincerely grateful for the support of our partners who have helped make this season happen. This includes Kayo, whose customers will relish the chance to watch outstanding red ball cricket on home soil. Similarly, we thank Marsh for their guidance as our long term risk management partner, and as series supporters. Through good risk management we’ve been able to make this season a possibility.’
“The Shield has a rich history as the world’s premier First Class cricket competition and this season’s tournament will showcase some of the finest talent in the game globally. We can’t wait to get under way this weekend.”
