The ICC has announced the most-watched match in the history of T20 international cricket. The highlight of the 2016 T20 World Cup semi-final was the clash between India and the West Indies. The Indian team could not even reach the semi-finals of the recently concluded T20 World Cup. At this year’s T20 World Cup, Australia beat New Zealand to win the trophy.
Another historic achievement was made in this World Cup tournament. The most-watched match in the history of T20 cricket was played in the United Arab Emirates, India vs Pakistan. This special game has broken the previous 5-year record. During the T20 World Cup, the most-watched match was the India-Pakistan match on October 24.
The match was watched for 15.9 billion minutes on the Star India network. This match has become the most-watched match in the history of international T20. Earlier, in the semi-finals of the 2016 T20 World Cup, the most-watched match was between India and the West Indies.
The ICC men’s T20 tournament set a world record for the most spectators worldwide. More than 1.67 million people have watched it on TV. The broadcasting rights of ICC events rest with the ICC and the host country.
Five years after this year’s T20 World Cup, the tournament aired for almost 10,000 hours on television and digital platforms in 200 countries. The number of visitors has increased in India, Pakistan, the UK, Australia, and the USA.
