Australian fans at Gabba, Brisbane Stadium.

The issue of broadcasting of the T20 World Cup in Australia resolved as Channel Nine Network and Fox Sports struck a deal with the host broadcaster.

There had been fears that Australia supporters would be deprived of watching Steve Smith lead’s men team match, but that is now put to rest.

The deal replicates the arrangements both networks had during last year’s 50 over World Cup: Fox Sports will show 35 World T20 matches live, while Nine network will broadcast Australian matches as well as the finals, regardless of Australia’s involvement.

Fox Sports’ coverage, beginning on March 8 with a doubleheader between Zimbabwe and Hong Kong before Scotland v Afghanistan, will also include 10 women’s World T20 matches.

No specific details of which women’s matches were provided. Australia, lead by Meg Lanning, are seeking their fourth consecutive women’s World T20 title.

Nine’s coverage will welcome former skipper Michael Clarke to the commentary box in a full-time role after he made a brief appearance during this year’s Sydney Test.

 

However, Australian team are currently touring South Africa for a three-match T20 series. The Steve Smith lead team are in the group of India, Pakistan, New Zealand. So they will have an uphill task in the group phase. Australia since 2014 World T20 played only nine T20. Nevertheless, their  journey will be tough at Indian conditions.
