The Asia Cup 2023 is set to kick off with an exciting match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The cricketing event, which is being eagerly anticipated by fans across the globe, will be broadcast and streamed live in various countries.
In South Asia, PTV Sports and TEN Sports channels will air the event. Additionally, Tamasha, a mobile application, has signed a deal with Ten Sports to provide live streaming for its customers.
For Indian cricket enthusiasts, the match will be available on Star Sports, with live stream coverage provided on the Disney+Hotstar platform. A variety of Star Sports channels, including Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1 Hindi HD, Star Sports 1 Tamil SD + HD, Star Sports 1 Telugu SD+HD, and Star Sports 1 Kannada, will also broadcast the event.
In Bangladesh, Gazi TV will air the Asia Cup 2023 matches and live streaming options will be available as well. Meanwhile, viewers in the UK can catch the action on TNT Sport 1, which will also offer live streaming services on its app. Australian fans can tune into Fox Sports for the broadcast, or use the Foxtel app for live streaming.
The opening match of the Asia Cup 2023 will see Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, both part of Group B, face off against each other. Sri Lanka, the defending champion, enters the tournament without some key players due to injuries. This gives the Bangla Tigers an opportunity to gain an upper hand over their depleted opponent.
The Asia Cup 2023, played under the 50-over format, is seen as a significant opportunity for teams to prepare for the ODI World Cup. It will test the teams’ strength and preparation for the longest format of cricket, where bowlers who are used to delivering four overs in a T20 match will have to bowl 10 overs in the ODI format.
While thousands of fans will get the chance to watch the match live at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, the majority will be tuning in via TV channels and live streaming apps.
