ICC Twenty20 world cup 2009 kicks off from 5 June 2009 in England. The 12-team tournament will have 27 matches in the space of 17 days. After the successful staging of the inaugural twenty20 world cup, cricket fans are expecting another highly entertaining tournament in England this time. Twenty20 is the shortest version of the game, and it is full of excitement because of its duration. This is a format where the condition of a match can change after every few overs and that is why, twenty20 matches are complete entertainers. Now that, another world cup of the latest version of the game approaches, it seems that cricket fans are ready to enjoy another highly competitive tournament.

There are 12 tams who will be divided into 4 groups of 3 teams each. Two teams from each group will progress to the Super Eight stage. From Super Eight, four teams will reach the semi final in terms of points achieved.

It is not possible for all of you to visit England to enjoy the matches and naturally, television will be the main source of enjoying the tournament. Here, I am giving a list of television channels which will telecast the matches of twenty20 world cup 2009 live in different parts of the world:
