Magellan Financial Group has terminated its naming rights sponsorship of domestic Test matches involving the Australian men’s cricket team just one summer into the three-year deal.

The fund manager’s response to the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa is a costly blow to Cricket Australia, with the deal estimated at about $20 million when it was signed in August last year.

It comes after sporting goods manufacturer Asics terminated its sponsorship of suspended players David Warner and Cameron Bancroft, and health food company Sanitarium ended its relationship with former captain Steve Smith.
