A collaboration between MaqTV, Voice of America (VOA) and Trinidad and Tobago Entertainment Network (TTEN) will see the upcoming US Open T20 tournament being aired “live” across the globe.
The live feed from the 17 matches at the main stadium, the Central Broward Regional Park will be aired ‘live’ out of the 31 matches played during the five-day event with 17 being held at the only ICC approved cricket venue in North America. The tournament being the only sanctioned event in the US by the ICC signifies the importance of the tournament being a building vehicle to promote more awareness and popularity of cricket in the United States.
A big contingent of West Indian World Cup stars are set to participate in the event, which will also see local US players & players from Canada take part. Afghanistan’s Shapoor Zadran is also expected to take part in the event.
