Netflix in association with the International Cricket Council (ICC), as well as uber-popular video-streaming outlet will be launching a documentary file on women’s cricket “Beyond the Boundary.” The documentary will be based on 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup, that will be electrifying and add up emotions.
The movie will feature a 17 days tournament that will establish the importance of the women’s cricket since the fans have started liking their game too.
ICC in their official statement said that “With absorbing visuals, commentary, and interviews in the build-up to and during the event, the documentary is the first piece of ICC original content to be carried by a streaming service.
It captures the progress of the teams and the emotions of players as they discuss preparing for such a big event and turning points in different matches.”
They further added that “” The views of commentators and administrators, a celebration of the crowds, behind-the-scenes, and dressing room footage, as well as pop star Katy Perry’s appearances are all featured in the film.”
The documentary will be made available in several languages including English, Japanese, Thai, Indonesian, Hindi, Korean, Malay, and French.
Manu Sawhney, the ICC Chief executive, in his statement said that “We are immensely proud of Beyond the Boundary and we are delighted to partner with Netflix as part of our long-term commitment to growing the visibility of the women’s game and ensuring it has a global platform.”
He further added that “The film captures all the action and drama from the tournament, which set new benchmarks for not just women’s cricket but all women’s sport and gives fans around the world the chance to relive one of the greatest ICC events we have ever staged.”
The film is based on 100% Cricket announced just before ICC Women’s T20 World Cup finals hosted on International Women’s Day at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, in front of 86,174 spectators.
