India will take on Sri Lanka in the upcoming T20I series and test matches that is all set to begin on Thursday, February 24th. There will be a total of three matches and India will be hosting. The venue for the first T20 is Ekana Sports City in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, while the second and third T20Is will be played in HPCA’s Dharamshala Stadium. The matches will live stream on Disney+ Hotstar but now Jio has confirmed to 91mobiles that the India vs Sri Lanka T20 matches will also stream on Jio TV as well. For those unaware, Jio TV is the company’s platform where it streams DTH channels over the Internet.
The exact channel where Jio TV will stream India vs Sri Lanka is unknown at the moment but we figure it will be a Start Sports channel since they own the broadcast rights. This comes just a day ahead of the India vs Sri Lanka T20 match series. So this means that even if you don’t have an active subscription for Disney+ Hotstar subscription, you can stream the match free of cost through the Jio TV platform if you have a Jio SIM.
Jio says that subscribers can watch the T20 series live on the JioTV app with live commentary in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada. While the test matches will only be streamed in English and Hindi. In addition to the live stream, viewers can also watch the Highlights of all cricket matches.
