    The eight-team tournament will see a state-of-the-art coverage which will include 34 cameras at every game
    · Ponting, McCullum, Smith and Sangakkara say they are raring to go as commentators for the premium tournament

    · Ganguly, Warne, Slater, Hussain, Atherton, Pollock, Manjrekar, Bishop, Ramiz, Doull and Athar among other former stars named in star-studded line-up

    · 34 cameras for each match; Player Tracking to be used for the first time in cricket

    The International Cricket Council (ICC) today announced a stellar line up of commentators as well as detailed broadcast production plans, which for the first time in cricket, include Player Tracking for the ICC Champions Trophy to be held in England and Wales from 1 to 18 June.

    Former captains Ricky Ponting of Australia, Brendon McCullum of New Zealand, Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka and Graeme Smith of South Africa will be making their ICC TV debut.

    Other big names who will commentate through the tournament include Sourav Ganguly, Shane Warne, Michael Slater, Nasser Hussain, Michael Atherton, Shaun Pollock, Sanjay Manjrekar, Ian Bishop, Ramiz Raja, Simon Doull and Athar Ali Khan.

    Ricky Ponting: “As a player, I always looked forward to the Champions Trophy. Winning it on two occasions was a big thrill. This year I’m really looking forward to it being staged in England and being a part of the commentary team.

    “I’m expecting Australia and England to make the final with Pat Cummins and Jason Roy, two guys to stand out across the two weeks. I can’t wait!”

    Brendon McCullum: “The ICC Champions Trophy is one event I look back on with many fond memories. Each team will be desperate to do well and put their stamp on the 50-over game.

    “To now be in the commentary box for such a prestigious tournament is something I am really looking forward to. Working with names like Ponting, Ganguly and Smith is going to be great fun and hopefully we can give the viewers a unique insight on the action unfolding out in the middle.”

    Graeme Smith: “I was very excited when I was asked to commentate at this year’s Champions Trophy and didn’t hesitate to accept. The Champions Trophy is a great tournament where every team has a chance to do well. I am sure there will be a few surprises and many memorable performances, so there’s a lot to look forward to!”

    Kumar Sangakkara: "The Champions Trophy is a special tournament which I loved playing in and am honoured to have enjoyed success in. Now, as a commentator, I am very much looking forward to being part of the tournament and watching the best players in the world go head to head.

    Most of the teams have a chance of lifting the trophy so it promises to be a fascinating three weeks of action."

    ICC TV will produce live coverage of all 15 matches, supported by production partner Sunset+Vine and equipment partner NEP Broadcast Solutions.

    The eight-team tournament, which kicks off with host England playing Bangladesh at The Oval on 1 June, will see a state-of-the-art coverage which will include 34 cameras at every game, including eight ultra-motion Hawk-Eye cameras, front and reverse view stump cameras and a Spidercam.

    In what is a first for cricket coverage, six Player Tracking cameras will be used in each match while the final at The Oval on 18 June will have additional pictures provided by a drone camera to supplement the broadcast coverage.

    Among other enhancements for the live coverage will be an Analysis Zone that will add depth to the coverage, bringing out details and nuances for the benefit of the audience. Regular broadcast tools such as the Hawk-Eye will be supplemented by an in-depth cricket data analytics system to be provided by analytics app Cricviz and a player tracking and real-time data visualization system made available by leading graphics company Chyron Hego.

    Aarti Dabas, Head of Media Rights, Broadcast and Digital: “The ICC is committed to providing a world class broadcast that is credible, informative, engaging and attracts a global audience. Our team of 15 Champion Commentators will help tell the story and build heroes, connecting with the fans using relevant insights and broadcast innovations.”

    Scores and statistics, which are an important element of any cricket coverage, will be provided by sports graphics specialists Alston Elliott in a fresh new style and feel designed by creative design agency DixonBaxi.

    The coverage provided by ICC TV to broadcasters will commence 30 minutes before the start of play of each match and will include the live toss, the pitch report, player profiles and features looking ahead to the game.

    Programming will be produced for the innings break to ensure continuous and engrossing content that will keep the viewers hooked. Reviews of the first half of games and a preview of run chases will be inter-woven with a segment dedicated to the history and stars of the ICC Champions Trophy. Match telecasts will culminate with a crisp post-match show.

    Sony MAX UK to air Sri Lanka & Pakistan cricket series this month

    Standing strong at the No.1 position amongst Bollywood movie channels in the UK, Sony MAX has just confirmed to BizAsiaLive.comthat it will broadcast the upcoming Sri Lanka and Pakistan cricket series, starting later this month.

    The recently concluded India tour of Sri Lanka proved a huge hit for Sony MAX, giving the channel an edge over its rivals. Within a month of joining the Sky Original Pack, Sony MAX beat off competition from Star Gold, ZEE Cinema, Rishtey Cineplex and B4U Movies. The competition is set to intensify further with the upcoming Sri Lanka and Pakistan cricket series, along with the premiere of all-time blockbuster movie ‘Baahubali’ on Sony MAX.

    The series, which starts on Sunday 24th September, is expected to take place in the United Arab Emirates over September and October. It will consist of two Tests, five One Day Internationals and three Twenty20 International matches. It is also reported that one of the One Day Internationals will be played in Lahore, which will be a homecoming for the Sri Lanka team after their team’s bus was attacked by terrorists while travelling to the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore in 2009.

    Viewers who subscribe to the Sky Box Sets package, will also be able to watch the cricket series and movies on Sony MAX HD – the first UK Bollywood HD movie channel.

    PSL Broadcasting TV Rights

    All eyes in the cricketing world will turn towards the PSL in February next year as Pakistan cricket will be hosting the third edition of the T20 league on par with some of the most successful leagues from across the globe.

    Here’s how you can watch the PSL live online free

    The tournament is set to kick off in February 2018 and the final is set to be played in Karachi. The venues in UAE are primarily Dubai and Sharjah hosting some of the matches while Pakistan is set to host 8 matches. Six teams will be competing for the trophy in PSL 2018.


    PSL to be streamed live on PSL-t20 Official site (Pakistan viewers) / Cricketgateway (International viewers).
    Pakistan - PTV Sports, Ten Sports, Geo Super
    India - PSL to air in India on DSport for the first time.
    Sri Lanka - Dialog TV
    UAE - Yupp TV
    UK - Prime TV
    West Indies - Flow TV
    Bangladesh - Gazi TV
    Africa - Supersport
    North Africa - Yupp TV
    Australia - No official broadcaster. Highlights on foxsports.com.au.

    Currently, PTV, Geo Sports and Ten Sports are the three official broadcasting TV partners for showing all cricket matches played in Pakistan. Indian viewers weren’t able to watch the second season of the PSL on TV which meant they needed to log in to Cricketgateway to watch it online.

    However, according to latest reports, the third season of the PSL might be broadcast in India on DSport, which had recently also won a few other cricket rights in the country.

    The third edition of the Pakistan Super League can be watched on TV in the UK with A Plus and UK 44 having won the broadcast rights of the tournament in the region. Prime TV channel is the official broadcaster of the PSL in the UK.

    Apart from the television broadcast, PCB has also tied up with online websites to enable streaming of the matches. This will ensure greater viewership and in turn will attract bigger sponsors.

    The third edition of the Pakistan Super League can be watched online at Cricketgateway, a website of the Global Sports Commerce and affiliate Technology Frontier Group, who have been awarded the sole licensing deal for showing it live.

    The other way to watch the PSL 2018 is by downloading the Cricket Gateway Android App and Cricket Gateway iOS App. Fans from all over the world can watch the PSL online using this app, with the site having seen nearly 5 million hits last season from Australia, UK, USA, Singapore, UAE, Canada, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Germany, India and Japan apart from other parts of the world.

    Although more is to be revealed later about the broadcasters of the PSL, PCB Executive Committee chief, Najam Sethi, says that PSL will make money out of broadcast rights, sponsorship rights, apparel rights, and ticket sales with the franchises getting a share out of this central pool.

    This alone puts the broadcast rights in a very crucial position as it will bear an important mark on the financial viability and success of this T20 league and will also be a crucial indicator on how the PSL is received across the world vis-à-vis other similar domestic championships.

    Neo Sports and Discovery split Indian Hong Kong T20 Blitz rights

    Neo Sports and Discovery Communications India’s DSport will share the Indian broadcast rights for the 2018 Hong Kong T20 Blitz.

    Global TV sports producer and distributor, Sunset+Vine, and China Cricket International, the organisers of the Hong Kong tournament, have confirmed broadcast deals for the third edition of the Twenty20 competition with a potential audience reach in excess of 175 million.

    BT Sport (UK), Fox Sports (Australia), OSN (Middle East), Neo Sports (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka & Bangladesh), ESPN Caribbean, DSport (India) and Chinese-owned StarTimes (Africa) have secured media rights for the five-team tournament that takes place between 6th and 11th February at the Kowloon Cricket Club.

    The organisers are also in negotiations with several broadcasters for other territories.

    The partnership with Sunset+Vine will enable the tournament to build on the momentum from the T20 Blitz live stream last March, which attracted nearly 12 million views across Cricket Hong Kong’s digital channels.

    For the 2018 edition each of the five teams - Galaxy Gladiators Lantau, HKI United, City Kaitak, Kowloon Cantons and Hung Hom JD Jaguars - will field five overseas players with the likes of Kumar Sangakkara, Darren Sammy, and Sohail Tanvir already signed up to take part.

    Cricket Hong Kong director Jonathan Cummings said: “Each year we have set ourselves the task of raising the bar. Last year, the increase in overseas players saw the tournament attract enormous interest and a lot of the credit for that has to go to all the franchise owners who are committed to promoting the game in Hong Kong.

    “Now that we are working with the ICC’s live events production partner Sunset+Vine, we are taking the tournament’s production values to the next level as we reach a truly global audience for the first time.”

    Ireland's first Test to be broadcast on Sky Sports

    Sky Sports has secured the rights to broadcast ball-by-ball coverage of Ireland's inaugural Test - against Pakistan - and the T20I series against India.

    Ireland and Afghanistan were awarded full-member status by the International Cricket Council last June, expanding the number of Test-playing nations from 10
    to 12.

    Ireland will take on Pakistan in their inaugural Test, from 11-15 May, before tackling India in two T20Is in late June.

    Warren Deutrom, chief executive of Cricket Ireland, confirmed the details of the largest broadcast rights package in Irish cricket history, which incorporates match coverage on networks in countries including the US and Australia.

    "This broadcast package is set to break Irish sporting records, as we anticipate that the T20I series against India alone will be the biggest worldwide TV audience of any event - sporting or otherwise - ever staged in Ireland," he said.

    "Since being confirmed as a Full Member of the International Cricket Council in June 2017, we have seen unprecedented interest in Irish cricket - most notably from a range of potential broadcast partners."

    He added: "It's been an amazing trajectory over the last 10 years. From playing in front of a few hundred a few short years ago, to playing last year at Lord's Cricket
    "Since being confirmed as a Full Member of the International Cricket Council in June 2017, we have seen unprecedented interest in Irish cricket - most notably from a range of potential broadcast partners."

    He added: "It's been an amazing trajectory over the last 10 years. From playing in front of a few hundred a few short years ago, to playing last year at Lord's Cricket
    Ground in front of 25,000 - and now we are set to take that next step.

    "To know so many people around the world are interested in our team should be a moment of pride for everyone connected with Irish cricket."

    The announcement comes in the same week that the ICC announced the fixtures for the 2019 World Cup - a tournament which Ireland missed out on following an agonising defeat to Afghanistan in the qualifying tournament.
