The match rated 10.9 TVR on Star network and 2.2 TVR on DD (TAM data M15+ ABC). 262 million viewers (TAM data CS4+ extrapolated to the universe using a standard conversion factor) tuned in to watch Team India chase down the West Indies’ total to register their fourth consecutive win at the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
