Indo–Pak match highest-rated ODI match in BARC history

MUMBAI: The India–Pakistan clash in the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy attracted 201 million viewers, thus becoming the highest-rated ODI match in BARC history.

Moreover, an impressive 294 million viewers tuned in for the first half of the tournament, as per BARC India data for 2+ (U+R) all India.

India’s CT17 title defence against Pakistan kick-started with the #SabseBadaMoh campaign. The highly anticipated match between the two nations is rated 2x more than the last edition of ICC Champions Trophy 2013.

Fittingly for an event of such scale, we redefined the viewer experience via our all-day programming and multi-language broadcast, which helped us set new benchmarks.”
