ESPN is set to televise the Caribbean T20 annual Twenty20 cricket tournament on its networks in the U.K. and Ireland, the Pacific-Rim, the Middle East, Israel, North Africa as well as sub-Saharan Africa, worldscreen.com reports.
Coverage begins on January 6, allowing fans around the world to experience West Indies cricket. On broadband, ESPN will be covering the event by providing all matches in the Caribbean and Latin America through ESPN Play and in the U.S., Australia and New Zealand on ESPN3.com. Online and on mobile, ESPNcricinfo will provide news, match previews, a range of audio and video and match reports.
Simon Potter, the senior director of programming for ESPN for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said, “Through television and digital media around the world, ESPN has a long association with cricket that we will continue to enhance and expand in the U.K. and Republic of Ireland. The Caribbean T20 is a great addition to our schedule in a month already full of great sport, including the FA Cup Third Round, and ESPNcricinfo will provide a link between fans and the tournament, wherever they are.”
