India-Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 match break record

Cricket has returned with a big bang ahead of the festive season as 176 million viewers tuned in to watch the first six games of the Asia Cup 2022. The high-octane blockbuster between India and Pakistan on August 28th, 2022, recorded a cumulative reach of 133 million and registered 13.6 billion minutes, registering a growth of almost 30% compared to the Ind-Pak encounter in Asia Cup 2016.

Speaking about the record viewership for the India-Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 match in the opening week, Sanjog Gupta, Head – Sports, Disney Star said, “The record-breaking viewership for Asia Cup 2022 demonstrates Cricket’s unparalleled power to aggregate fans across platforms, enhanced by Disney Star’s focus on audience expansion. We were focused on elevating the stature of the Asia Cup as a marquee tournament and expanding the appeal of Ind vs Pak as the unmissable ‘Greatest Rivalry’. Our high decibel marketing campaign combined with a focus on lead-up programming and regional coverage has resulted in Ind vs Pak league match becoming the highest-rated T20I ever (outside of World Cup matches). This is an ideal start to the festival of Cricket which entails bilateral series vs Australia & South Africa and is followed by the ICC T20 World Cup.”

Star Sports was also instrumental in bringing two of the biggest legends – Ravi Shastri and Wasim Akram – together after almost a decade to curate a LIVE ‘Shaz and Waz’ show. Additionally, a special show ‘Virat: Heart To Heart’ featuring King Kohli became the most candid interview that the Indian legend has ever delivered.
