Viewers in more than 80 million homes from Africa to the US will be able to watch all the action as it unfolds. Dubai-based host broadcaster Taj TV will show live action via its Ten Sports network. The commentary team will include Waqar Younis who played in the inaugural tournament in 1992 for eventual winners Pakistan. Sri Lankan wicketkeeper-batsman Kumar Sangakkara was expected to make his debut as a cricket commentator but had to pull out after he recovered from a hand injury and was included in the squad to tour Zimbabwe.
