Two of USA’s group matches at the 2012 ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier will be available to watch online through internet broadcast service Quipu TV. USA’s third Group B match against Namibia on March 15 and fourth group match against Ireland on March 16 will be shown live through the service.

Quipu TV will be broadcasting two matches per day during the group stage of the tournament from March 13 through March 20 for a total of 14 matches. The matches will be streamed for free off www.quipu.tv. In January, Quipu TV broadcast England’s three-day warm-up fixture against an ICC Associate and Affiliate XI from Dubai. Viewers had to pay $9.99 to access the service.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Associate and Affiliate cricket to be seen by a global audience,” said ICC Global Development Manager Tim Anderson in a media release to announce Quipu TV’s coverage. “We are delighted that fans will be able to watch a live online stream of the biggest tournament in the history of the Pepsi ICC Development Programme.”

Television channel ESPN Star will be broadcasting six matches during the knockout phase of the tournament, including the tournament final on March 24.
