Sky Sports will dedicate an entire channel to the ICC Cricket World Cup, from the first to the last day of the biggest one-day event in the international cricket calendar.
For six weeks, Sky Sports 2 will become ‘Sky Sports World Cup’, giving viewers over 1,000 hours of round the clock cricket coverage, including all 49 matches live, as well as build-up, analysis and highlights. Two dedicated reporters will be in Australia and New Zealand, and the Verdict show will be back live for every England match to debate the performance.
“The Cricket World Cup is the one of the world’s biggest sporting events, offering six weeks of rivalry between 14 nations,” comments Barney Francis, Sky Sports Managing Director. “By dedicating a whole channel to the tournament, fans know that there’s only once place to watch all of the action live, catch up with highlights and enjoy the reaction and views of our experts. This is the biggest ever year of cricket on Sky Sports and the channel will help to make sure it’s our best yet.”
Fans will be able to watch the action live on mobile, laptop and selected tablet devices via Sky Go wherever they are and follow live over-by-over commentary and scorecards of every match.
