The Caribbean’s leading telecommunications provider, LIME, and the Caribbean Media Corporation have teamed up to bring the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 to many households in the Caribbean.

India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are hosting the tournament, with 14 nations split into two groups of seven for the first round.

West Indies are in Group B with India, South Africa, England, Bangladesh, Ireland and Netherlands.

CMC is broadcasting a total of 49 games until the tournament ends on 2 April. The final is at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, India.
