The ICC is partnering with Google to bring global cricket fans a unique viewing experience of the semi-finals and final of the ICC Women’s World T20 2018 in the West Indies.
The collaboration includes enabling the casting of video content from the ICC mobile app on cast-enabled devices such as Chromecast and Google Home Hub, allowing fans around the world to get closer to the final stages of the event and stay up to date on the teams, matches and favourite players. The content includes in-match clips and short-form highlights.
‘This is a hugely exciting collaboration for cricket and I’m delighted to welcome Google on board with the ICC Women’s World T20 in the West Indies,’ said ICC chief executive David Richardson. ‘Connecting with fans and giving more of the world the chance to enjoy our sport is vital, and our partnership with Google enables us to do that.
‘Cricket may be a sport steeped in tradition, but it is one that has consistently embraced technology on and off the field to improve the game and the fan experience, and we must continue to innovate. The fact that a fan can now enjoy the ICC app content on cast-enabled devices for the first time ever for a cricket event is great news.’
