The International Cricket Council has announced coverage plans for the ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup 2022 on January 13, the event which showcases the future stars of the game, with ICC TV set to produce live coverage of 20 matches. In addition, there will be 23 live streamed matches and digital clips coverage from the five remaining matches.

The tournament which is being hosted by the West Indies for the first time starts on Friday 14 January in Guyana with the Final in Antigua and Barbuda on Saturday 5 February, with St Kitts and Nevis and Trinidad and Tobago acting as the other two host countries.

Distribution of the live coverage of the 20 matches will be supported by ICC’s Global Broadcast Partner, Star Sports, and other Broadcast Partners including, Star Sports (India, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Nepal, Bhutan) Sky Sports (United Kingdom and ROI), Gazi TV (Bangladesh), Fox Sports (Australia), Willow TV and ESPN+ (USA), Willow TV (Canada), Sky Sport NZ (New Zealand), PTV and ARY (Pakistan), SuperSport (South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa), Etisalat (MENA), Digicel (Pacific Islands), Yupp TV (Continental Europe, SEA & South America), Astro Cricket, (Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong) YuppTV.com (Continental Europe, MENA (excl. UAE) and Central Asia) and ESPN/Star Plus  (Latin America).

Local broadcaster, ESPN Caribbean, will bring coverage of the tournament to fans in the host country broadcasting all 20 matches.

The 20 televised games will be introduced by a strong commentary line-up with Caribbean representation from ICC Men’s T20 World Cup winners Carlos Brathwaite and Samuel Badree, along with the experienced Fazeer Mohammed.

Former ICC U19 Men’s CWC winner from the 1998 edition Graeme Swann will also be on hand to analyze the performances of future stars from around the world, and he will be joined by former New Zealand fast bowler Simon Doull, and former Ireland wicket-keeper batsman Niall O’Brien. Bringing the Asian perspective will be former Sri Lanka player Russel Arnold and former India internationals Deep Dasgupta and Rohan Gavaskar. Alongside them will be leading broadcasters Alan Wilkins, Natalie Germanos and Charles Dagnall.

Carlos Brathwaite said: “I’m thrilled to be part of the commentary team at the ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup. It’s a wonderful opportunity to watch the next generation of stars who will be ruling the world of cricket in the years to come. I thank the ICC for giving me this opportunity and I can’t wait to start!”

Graeme Swann said: “It’s wonderful to be back at the U19 World Cup. I was a member of the England squad that won the title in 1998 and have some very fond memories from then. I know from experience what a wonderful opportunity it is for players as they get the taste of a global event so early in their playing careers. My message to the players will be to express themselves and make the most of the opportunities that come their way. I am sure I’ll have a great time in the commentary box.”

Natalie Germanos said: “Watching the world’s best upcoming talent is a great experience for any broadcaster, and exciting too because you don’t know what to expect from each player. But I know for sure it’s going to be fun discussing the game with the fine commentary panel in place for the tournament.”

Samuel Badree said: “It’s great to see the U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup being played in the West Indies and it’s doubly sweet for me as I get to commentate on the action. I wish all the teams the very best and hope to see some top-quality cricket during the tournament.”

ICC TV’s coverage will be supported by Sunset+Vine for production services and NEP Broadcast Solutions for equipment services. The graphics will be brought alive on screen by scoring and graphics output specialists AE Live.

The coverage will provide a fully produced programme which will allow broadcasters to transmit the matches without the need for a unilateral presentation set-up. A pre-game build-up show, an innings interval show and a post-game wrap-up will be produced, in addition to the match coverage. The build-up will begin 30 minutes before the start of play and include the toss, pitch report and match previews. The innings interval programming will also dip into the archives to revisit classic encounters from previous editions of the ICC U19 Men’s CWC. The match day coverage will end with a brief wrap-up of the day’s proceedings.

In addition, 23 further matches at the U19 Men’s CWC will be live streamed on ICC.tv in the Caribbean, MENA, Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada – full country list below. Fans can also view online clips of the matches on BBC in the UK and Ireland, and on Spark in New Zealand and ESPN+ in USA.

The tournament can be followed via the official ICC mobile app and website including news, live coverage, results and highlights for all broadcast games.

The ICC’s official social media channels will bring you closer than ever to the action with exclusive video content delivered across Facebook and Instagram, and fans can follow and join the discussion around the event via the official #U19CWC hashtag.
