SonyLiv will stream the historic Australia-England women’s day-night Test in India.
November 9, Thursday, has become the landmark day for women cricket, as Australian and English women play the historic first day and night four-day Test at North Sydney Oval.
Following and exposure for women cricket is growing by the day. After unprecedented success of ICC Women World Cup this year once again women cricket is set to leave its impact.
According to the Cricket Australia release, along with the leading streaming platforms in Australia and England, SONY LIV in India will live stream the landmark match for the Indian sub-continent fans. BT Sport is streaming the match live for the viewers in UK. Cricket Australia is broadcasting the same on its own digital assets.
The enhanced live stream offering builds upon the significant coverage of the series from CA’s broadcast partners, with the Nine Network showing all ODI and T20 matches in the series and ABC Radio providing coverage and commentary throughout.
The production will feature nine cameras around the ground, advanced graphics and coverage throughout breaks in play. The HD live stream will be free to viewers around the world, with an all-star all-female commentary cast.
Hailed as “the most advanced production Cricket Australia has ever put together” and made possible by assistance from the Commonwealth Bank, fans for the first time can enjoy a live stream in full HD, thanks to broadcast-quality equipment and a highly experienced production team behind the scenes.
For the cricket lovers in India there will be two Indian-origin voices in the all-female commentary box. Four legends of Australian and English cricket will come together in a world-class commentary line-up, with Australia greats Lisa Sthalekar and Mel Jones to be joined by former England captain Charlotte Edwards and pace bowler Isa Guha in the commentary box for the sole Test of the Commonwealth Bank Women’s Ashes. Between them, the commentary quartet have played 675 international matches including 44 Tests.
