  1. Any chance to see this online, like Youtube, or any other? What about North American fans, how can they see it online?

        1. No it won’t telecast as Sky Sports has got the broadcasting rights in UK region. To watch online, you can visit SkyGo to watch live streaming of all world t20 matches 2016.

      1. Willow TV has nothing advertised on their website regarding live telecast of ICC World T20 2016, and also doesn’t sow on their list of fixtures to be covered live for the year. Please advise.
