The International Cricket Council has announced the details of its broadcast arrangements for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, the biggest ICC World Cup ever with 20 teams playing across nine host locations, that will bring fans closer to the game than ever before.

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup fever kicks off on the 1 June with the co-hosts, the USA taking on their neighbours Canada in Dallas with the final taking place in Barbados on 29 June.

The ICC, through its direct broadcast partnerships with world class broadcasters around the globe, aims to bring an out of this world coverage of all 55 matches for fans in what will be the biggest cricket carnival spectacle.

In India, Star Sports Network and Disney + Hotstar will be the place to watch for fans as India attempt to lift the Men’s T20 World Cup trophy for the first time since the inception of the event in 2007. In addition to the English world feed, Star Sports will also broadcast the tournament in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada and digital platform Disney+ Hotstar will host each match live.

The Star Network has pioneered another innovation, increasing the accessibility of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup by announcing the Indian Sign Language Feed, which provides the first-of-its kind audio descriptive commentary for an ICC event.

We see the continuation of the hugely successfully vertical feed, which debuted for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup last year, produced by ICC TV and supported by Disney Star, to provide fans with an easier and more intuitive mobile phone viewing experience of all 55 matches allowing users worldwide to consume content on-the-go. The vertical feed will now provide an enhanced user experience through AI-powered innovations designed to engage casual fans with an intuitive viewing experience optimized for mobile devices.
