USA Cricket have joined forces with their strategic partner, CricClubs to bring live-stream broadcasts of all 6 One Day Internationals (ODI) between the USA, Namibia and Papua New Guinea from ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida starting tomorrow, September 13, 2019.
All six ODI’s between Team USA, Namibia, and Papua New Guinea are being played at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Fort Lauderdale and every ball of the six matches will be live-streamed from Florida. USA and Namibia are playing their inaugural matches in the new ICC Cricket World Cup League 2, whilst Papua New Guinea will be looking for their first points after defeats to Scotland and Oman in the opening series of the League last month in Scotland.
Every match will be live streamed with a single-camera broadcast, Cricclubs scoring graphics and commentary. Fans will be able to tune into the broadcast for free via the USA Cricket YouTube channel or on the USA Cricket Match Center on the official USA Cricket website.
USA Cricket CEO Iain Higgins is delighted to be able to bring the live coverage of the historic series of matches. “The achievement of Team USA’s Men’s National Team gaining ODI Status earlier in the year in gaining ODI status was a landmark day for the sport here in America. With it, comes our place in ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 and the chance to host our first ever One Day Internationals on American soil. We have seen the popularity of the live-stream coverage of our Men’s and Women’s National Teams with our community of late and we wanted to ensure that all Team USA fans could watch along over the coming week. We’re very thankful for the support of our valued strategic partner, CricClubs to be able to make the coverage possible. It’s crucial that we get off to a good start in our opening matches towards qualification for ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 and I know our squad will be looking to get early points on the table against our guests, Papua New Guinea and Namibia.”
