‘Cricket fever’ takes over in Prime Video’s first ICC World Cup campaign

ICC World Cup

The creative, by Leo Burnett Australia, dramatises the way Cricket Fever can take hold of a nation.

As the new home of ICC World Cup Cricket in Australia, Prime Video is kicking off its new ad campaign for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup featuring Usman Khawaja. 

The creative, by Leo Burnett Australia, dramatises the way Cricket Fever can take hold of a nation, spreading excitement – game by game, fan by fan, until everyone gets caught up in the event. The film follows Khawaja as he realises the fever has taken hold of his own street.


It aims to differentiate from the category and connect with cricket lovers through a shared fanaticism of the sport; cricket references abound for casual and superfans alike.

The campaign will run across TV, BVOD, YouTube, social, OLV, and owned channels.

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will be shown live exclusively on Prime Video, live from 2-30 June. 

Prime Video is the exclusive Australian broadcaster of the Men’s and Women’s Cricket World Cups, the T20 World Cups, the Champions Trophy, and the World Test Championship Final until 2027.

Prime Video exclusively holds the live Australian broadcast rights for ICC cricket events for the next four years.
