Dubai: Feb 28, 2013

The ICC on Thursday, announced live streaming of 16 matches from the remaining three rounds of the Pepsi World Cricket League (WCL) Championship 2011-2013, commencing with the crucial fifth round fixtures that kick off in the United Arab Emirates on March 6.

This is the first time multiple WCL Championship matches will be broadcast to a global audience. Four games of the upcoming fifth round will be streamed live at www.icc-cricket.com, and viewers will be able to watch all matches free of charge.

Tim Anderson, the ICC’s Global Development Manager, said: “This live coverage marks another important step in the ICC’s objective to shine a brighter light on the elite cricket being played by the top Associate and Affiliate Members.

Kevin O’Brien and Paul Stirling of Ireland, and Mohammed Nabi and Mohammed Shahzad of Afghanistan, are examples of the talented players now competing at this level, and we are therefore delighted to be offering cricket fans the opportunity to see these new stars of international cricket in action.”

In the first live broadcasts of the fifth round, Afghanistan will take on second-placed Scotland in two ODIs, on March 6 and 8 respectively, at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, a match Afghanistan must win to stay in contention for a top-two finish for the 2015 ICC World Cup.

In the other live broadcast fixture of round five, table-topper Ireland will face host UAE on March 18 and 20, also at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

In other fifth-round fixtures, Kenya take on Canada in two ODIs at the ICC Global Cricket Academy in Dubai March 11 and 13, while Namibia will host third-placed the Netherlands on April on 16 and 18.

The sixth and penultimate round of the WCL Championship will be played during July and August, while the final round matches will be staged in September and October.
