Test matches will be telecast on DD Sports. The primary telecast on DD Sports will be a combination of Hindi and English.
The aggregate reach of all the channels telecasting the series is over 160 million. With its widest distribution network, the series will be available across the length and breadth of the country. This will be the most comprehensive coverage of an India bilateral cricket series by a free-to-air channel.
