With no live sport currently available, we’ve partnered with the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) to create a unique and innovative content experience for cricket fans to enjoy.
From next week, the Hero CPL will be broadcasting classic matches from the last seven years of the tournament, but with a twist. They will be broadcast as if they are live!
In an industry first, rather than airing the original commentary, CPL has enlisted its world-class broadcasting team, including Tom Moody, Danny Morrison, Ian Bishop and Alex Jordon to commentate live on the action.
To make each match as realistic as possible, CPL will not give any of the match information to the commentary team before the game starts. Their reactions and comments will be as if they are watching the games live, for the first time- providing unparalleled levels of authenticity.

The CPL digital team will also be covering these matches as if they are live, providing match clips, graphics and behind the scenes content to replicate the CPL experience. Opening the CPL vault has served as a reminder of the classic, high impact CPL games there has been. Now fans can re-live the best matches with an up to the minute twist, thanks to CPL’s brilliant commentary team.
The CPL has also featured some of the greatest T20 cricketers of all time, and fans will be able to enjoy some of their amazing performances as if they are watching them for the first time, with the commentators calling the game as if it was live.
These matches will be broadcast using our leading cloud video platform, which will allow the commentators to broadcast remotely. The commentary team will be based in Australia, Trinidad, New Zealand and Barbados.
