Mumbai: FanCode has partnered with Caribbean Premier League (CPL T20) to exclusively live stream all the cricket matches from the T20 tournament starting today (August 18).
FanCode will provide a comprehensive digital experience to CPL fans through an array of features such as live streaming with interactive data overlays, real-time highlights, interactive live scores with multimedia commentary, and even provide India’s first customised commentary for fantasy sports users. This comprehensive digital experience of Hero CPL will be available through FanCode's industry-first offering - Match Pass and Tour Pass, a press release from FanCode said.
CPL will be the first mainstream T20 cricket league to start since COVID-19 lockdown. Now in its eighth edition, the CPL matches will start at 7:30 PM IST on each match day.
Launching with CPL, the consumer-first features being rolled out to fans by FanCode includes interactive data overlays, where fans can customise the data they want to see while watching the live stream. Fans will also, for the first time in India for cricket, have the choice and flexibility to subscribe to the specific content they want for the CPL through Match Pass, for match-wise access, and Tour Pass, for access to the entire tournament. Sports fans will not have to commit to a monthly or annual subscription fee for the entire platform to watch their favourite tournament or a match of their choice, FanCode said.
The 33-match season will be hosted in Trinidad and Tobago. All the matches will take place across two stadiums in that country - The Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba will host 23 games, including the semi-finals and final, and the Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain will have 10 matches.
Two of the six teams competing in the CPL are owned by Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises - Kings XI Punjab owns St Lucia Zouks, and Kolkata Knight Riders have acquired CPL’s most successful franchise to date - Trinbago Knight Riders.
CPL will witness participation from the likes of Afghanistan's Rashid Khan, Australia's Chris Lynn, West Indies' Carlos Brathwaite, Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard and India’s Pravin Tambe. Apart from the FanCode App (iOS | Android), the matches will also be live streamed on the website - www.fancode.com.
