Akashvani gets exclusive radio broadcast rights for the commentary of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015

NEW DELHI: Even as controversy continues to prevail over how Doordarshan can fulfil the Delhi High Court order in the light of the must-carry clause, All India Radio has got the exclusive rights for the broadcast of radio commentary for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.

All India Radio (AIR) will broadcast ball-by-ball bilingual commentary of 17 One-day International Cricket matches of the forthcoming World Cup Tournament, which will take place in Australia and New Zealand from 15 February to 29 March.

AIR will broadcast commentary of matches that are played by India and some of the matches involving neighbouring countries. It will also broadcast all the matches that will be played from the quarter-finals stage onwards.

The commentaries of the 17 ODI matches will be broadcast on the national hook-up and the same will be relayed by 66 identified Medium Wave AIR stations and the FM Gold network. All India Radio, Delhi, will broadcast hourly updates of the 17 matches on its FM Rainbow Channel and it will be relayed by all other AIR FM Rainbow Channels, thus ensuring unique dissemination.

The commentary will be interspersed with news and bytes of nationally and internationally acclaimed cricket stars to add value to the coverage. One will hear the close knocking sound of bat, the gasps and the beauty of the match will be crisply worded to give the vivid picture of 17 matches.

Cricket enthusiasts can also follow on Twitter and the official Facebook page.
