Daraz, Tapmad secure Asia Cup 2022 streaming rights in Pakistan

Daraz and Tapmad obtained privileges from the public broadcaster, Pakistan Television (PTV) and pay-television broadcaster, Ten Sports.

The Asia Cup 2022, which is set to begin on August 27 in the UAE, has been sublicensed in Pakistan by the Alibaba-owned shopping platform, Daraz and streaming service, Tapmad.

Daraz and Tapmad obtained privileges from the public broadcaster, Pakistan Television (PTV) and pay-television broadcaster, Ten Sports. Since 2014, the pay-television broadcaster has held global media rights to the competitions as part of a series of agreements with the Asian Cricket Council (ACC).

Daraz and Tapmad will provide live coverage of every game during the two-week contest, which will begin on August 27 in Dubai after being relocated from Sri Lanka due to economic worries.

The upcoming Asia Cup will feature the region’s five major teams – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka – as well as a sixth inductee decided by a qualification scenario in Oman.

The Asia Cup was established in 1984 and has been toggling between a 20-over and a 50-over format. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was forced to cancel in 2020 and 2021.

The tournament allows Pakistan and India to play matches outside bilateral series. Due to political strained relations and security issues, both teams don’t face each other in a bilateral series.
