Star Sports, the “host” broadcaster for the up-coming World T20 in India, has confirmed that it will be televising 10 of the 23 matches which make up the women’s tournament, which runs concurrently with the men’s event in March/ April next year.
Star will show the semi-finals, final and 7 selected “group” matches – four of which you’d imagine will be those involving India.
Because of the nature of the broadcast deal between Star and the ICC, CRICKETher understands that it is highly unlikely that Sky would be able to show any matches in the UK other than those being televised by Star, so our chances of seeing all of England’s games would appear to be minimal. (And ditto for fans in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, etc.)
Nevertheless, this is still a substantial improvement over the 2014 WWT20 in Bangladesh, when only the semis and final were shown live.
