ST. JOHN’S, Antigua – Both webcasts of the semi-finals in the Regional 4-Day Tournament, starting on Saturday, will benefit from enhanced video production.
Viewers around the World will be able to enjoy multi-camera coverage of the matches on the West Indies Cricket Board’s website, www.windiescricket.com.
“We’re very excited about this initiative,” said WICB Marketing & Communications Manager Imran Khan.
“This will certainly enhance the online webcasts significantly from the single-camera operation which we have employed during the preliminary rounds and in previous years.
“We will now have multi-camera productions from Barbados and Trinidad respectively, and we trust that fans will log on and enjoy the coverage and share the information with their friends and colleagues.”
Khan said viewers of the match between Barbados and Jamaica will also have the additional feature of replays and built-in graphics.
The webcasts will also have commentary with the “live” ball-by-ball radio feed from the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation accompanying the coverage of the match in Barbados, while a small team of presenters, including West Indies fast bowling legend Colin Croft, has been assembled for the coverage of the match in Trinidad.
“We are also grateful for the support towards this initiative from the two host territorial boards, the Barbados Cricket Association and the T&T Cricket Board without whose assistance this could not have been achieved,” said Khan.
He said the WICB is also planning to have enhanced webcasts of the Final, which starts next Friday at a venue to be determined, depending on the outcome of this weekend’s matches.
The WICB will continue its “live” online text updates on its social media platforms – www.facebook.com/windiescricket and www.twitter.com/windiesregional.
