ESPN International vice president, digital media Arne Rees said, "We‘re thrilled fans from around the globe chose ESPNcricinfo as their go-to across all platforms to follow the World Twenty20 Championship. We‘re proud to be serving a growing audience of US cricket fans while continuing our leadership in delivering for fans across the Indian subcontinent, the UK, Australia, South Africa, the Caribbean and around the rest of the world.
