Sky to broadcast international cricket in 3D next month

Swing a miss or hit for six: Sky to broadcast cricket in 3D

Sky has announced a move away from football-only 3D sports coverage, introducing plans to broadcast One Day International cricket in all its three dimensional glory.

First on Sky’s 3D cricketing endeavour is England’s opening NatWest One Day International match against Bangladesh on July 8th. To date, Sky’s only forays into 3D sports broadcasting have revolved entirely around football.

Executive Cricket Producer for Sky Sports, Paul King, talking on the first cricket international to be broadcast in the extra dimension said: "This is a revolution in cricket broadcasting creating a view of the action never seen before. I'm sure our viewers will be stunned by the results."

His excitement for the event was echoed by England pace bowler James Anderson: "I've seen Sky 3D and it's a phenomenal viewing experience. I can't wait to see what I and the rest of the lads look like in 3D on 8 July.”

The England vs. Bangladesh 3D encounter will be shown in a number of UK pubs on July 8th. To find out where your closest 3D touting boozer is, check the Sky 3D pub guide here.
