Australia vs India T20I Game Two is now the most-watched cricket game ever on subscription television.
Australia’s second T20I vs India on Sunday night attracted an audience of 623,000.
With a live audience of 623,000 across all Foxtel platforms, the second Australia vs India T20I bettered previous record STV audience set just last weekend with Australia’s second ODI vs India. The opening two games of the T20I series are up 49% for total viewing, and 18% for TV only against the 2018 T20I series played on India’s 2018/19 Tour of Australia.
A consistent audience tuned in for Sunday’s game two with session one averaging 624,000 and session two averaging 622,000 across all Foxtel Group platforms.
Steve Crawley, executive director Fox Sports, said: “The summer of cricket is in full swing and we couldn’t be happier. After a cracker ODI series it went down to the wire last night, and our audiences are loving it.
“More white ball has proven to be a hit with the fans, and we’ve got plenty more cricket to come. Test team spots are up for grabs in the Australia A vs India A tour match this week, we’ve got one more T20 on Tuesday night, the Big Bash beginning on Thursday and the First Test on December 17 with a day-night game at Adelaide Oval – bring it on.”
India’s tour of Australia continues with the final T20I match on Tuesday from 6.30 pm AEDT, leading into Australia A v India day-night Tour match on December 11 and the first Test on December 17.
