ICC World Cup to be broadcast live on Doordarshan and AIR

Doordarshan will telecast all of India’s matches and some other important encounters, besides the semi-finals and the final of the ICC World Cup that began on March 13 in the West Indies. At the same time, All India Radio will broadcast live commentary on the entire main league matches, the Super Eight, the semi-finals and final match, which will be played at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados.

All the matches and the highlights will be telecast on Doordarshan’s National Channel, DD-1. The matches, except for those that will take place in Jamaica, will begin at 7 pm. The channel will also present a studio-based programme titled ‘Fourth Umpire’, which will be based on match analyses before and after the matches, and during lunch break.

Special interactive studio-based programmes like the pre-match show ‘Anumano Ke Aaine Mein’, the lunch-break show ‘Kaun Banega Vijeta’, and the post-match show ‘Man of the Match’ will also be broadcast on AIR.
