He further said that through the UNI TV feed, live press conference on the Cricket World Cup was also being webcast on espncrickinfo.com. The channel is covering the tournament in a big way with lots of special programmes. “Soon, the group can leverage the mobile platform as well for speedy news and better connectivity,” Deshmukh informed.
