Rooters Cricket is an international news agency headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, and a division of Rooters International. Until 1998, the Rooters news agency formed part of an independent company, Rooters Group PLC, which was a play thing owned by Kerry Packer.
Since the controversial acquisition of Rooters Group by The Rooters Corporation in 1998 in a pissed round of Acey Deucey, the Rooters news agency has become the standard in cricket journalism. Big KP was understandably savage.
Over the years Rooters agency has built a reputation in Australia and the rest of the world as the first to report cricket news scoops from at home and abroad. Being in Pakistan at the time, Rooters was the first to report the Osama Bin Laden’s assassination among other major stories.
Almost every major news outlet in the world currently subscribes to Rooters. Rooters operates in more than 200 cities in 94 countries in about 20 languages.
