There won’t be a live broadcast of the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) in India in 2024. Nevertheless, ardent fans of the competition can watch the games on FanCode, an Indian over-the-top streaming service. The PSL’s ninth edition is scheduled to begin play on February 17 and end on March 18. The league is ready to display the skill of elite cricket players competing for the coveted crown from all around the world.
FanCode’s rise to prominence as the premier website for cricket enthusiasts, despite the absence of broadcast coverage on Indian television networks, illustrates how sports consumption has evolved in the digital age. Fans will be able to watch the matches on smart TVs, laptops, or mobile devices via the FanCode website and smartphone app. Fancode is the official broadcast partner of PSL 2024 in India.
In addition, the Pakistan Cricket Board‘s (PCB) financial struggles have had a big impact on the PSL.
The absence of live broadcasts of the league in India could be attributed to this financial difficulty. Notably, the cricket board’s financial struggles have forced the cancellation of the women’s exhibition matches, a traditional pre-league event.
