The moment of truth is here. The numbers by TAM Sports data show that ratings for CS 4+ All India market have pulled in a gross rating of 7.47 TVR, with a peak rating of 12.2 TVR.

The initial glimpse of ratings in the six-metro market clocked a 7.8 TVR for the first match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 (India versus Bangladesh), which has slightly declined when viewed on a nation-wide scale.

Opening Ceremony
The opening ceremony gained a 0.84 TVR in the All India CS 4+ markets and scored the highest in markets of Kolkata and 0.5-million plus Assam markets, where it clocked in ratings of 2.54 TVR and 2.52 TVR, respectively.

Market wise, ratings are testimonial to the good response to the tournament, with the top viewing states being Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra, which have clocked ratings of 10-plus in the 1 million plus CS 4+ markets. Top rated cities are Pune at 9.46 TVR, Bangalore at 9.17 TVR and Mumbai at 9.14 TVR.

As is known, the ICC Cricket World Cup matches are being telecast on the ESS group of channels – ESPN, Star Cricket and Star Sports – and as per Government directions, on DD1.

On an All India level, the highest viewership has been gained by Star Sports, which has garnered a 2.71 TVR. The second top viewed channel was ESPN, the official broadcaster, which gained a 1.98 TVR. DD1 came in next with a 1.89 TVR, followed by Star Cricket at 1.01 TVR, which telecasts the matches in Hindi.
