Sunset+Vine return to the DP World ILT20 as Host Broadcaster

Global sports production and content business, Sunset+Vine, is thrilled to announce that it will once again be providing host broadcast services for this year’s DP World International League T20, live from the UAE.

The 160-strong production team, led by Executive Producer Huw Bevan, will provide Host Broadcast services for tournament - 34 matches across 3 venues - producing the World Feed match coverage, English language pre, post & highlights shows – as well as a dedicated Hindi language feed for the League and global rights holder Zee TV. The Hindi feed includes match coverage and pre & post programming. The Sunset+Vine production team will be joined by 22 commentators and presenters for the event bringing expert comment, entertainment, and analysis to the output in both languages.

This is the second year Sunset+Vine has produced the tournament which has become an important T20 cricket franchise tournament in the sport’s calendar. Bringing the coverage to life will be 31 match cameras, including an array of Ultra and Supermotion cameras and replay systems, Spidercam, Drone and Buggy cameras, Hawkeye DRS and QT real time player tracking graphics. The team will also deploy two brand new cameras to capture insights from inside the third umpire room.

Huw Bevan, Executive Producer for Sunset+Vine, commented: "We are delighted to partner with DP World ILT20 for production of the second season. We saw the entertainment and quality of play that was generated in the first season and how it captured the imagination of cricket fans worldwide; and are excited to see how the League develops in this second season."

David White, CEO at DP World ILT20, added: "The DP World ILT20 Season 2 promises to be bigger and better as we are ready to build further on the success of the inaugural season last year. Last season's production produced by Sunset+Vine working with Zohaib Hussain - the league’s Broadcast Production Consultant, reached out to more than 365 million viewers around the world! The viewers enjoyed the action on linear and digital platforms of Zee Entertainment and its syndication partners. We are excited and aiming to reach new milestones in Season 2!"
