YouTube to stream cricket matches

YouTube is to broadcast all 60 games of the forthcoming Indian Premier League Twenty20 cricket competition, from March 12 to April 25.

This is the result of a deal struck between the IPL and internet giant Google.

Viewers will be able to watch for free the live action, as well as special packages.

“We are thrilled to have the IPL as our global partner and bring to the YouTube community around the world and here in India an interactive, unique experience building greater awareness around the world for the sport,” Shailesh Rao, a representative of Google, said in a statement on the IPL website.

IPL boss Lalit Modi said the new dedicated IPL channel “would be the biggest virtual stadium in the world”.
