The second T20I of the two-match T20I series between Ireland and India is underway at the Village in Dublin. Indian captain Hardik Pandya once again got it right at the toss and opted to bat first unlike 1st T20I where India bowled first. Pandya’s decision to bat first was proved right by the batters as India put on a massive 225/7 on the scoreboard.
Deepak Hooda was the man of the moment with his maiden T20I century. The batters amassed 104 runs off just 57 balls with the help of nine boundaries and six sixes. Sanju Samson also played a brilliant knock of 77 (42). While everyone at the stadium was enjoying the fireworks by Indian batters, the fans watching the match on Sony Pictures Network live streaming platform Sony LIV were struggling to get a hold of the game.
There were many instances when the match got stopped in the middle. The scoreboard was also not getting updated as quickly as it should. These technical glitches during the live match did not sit too well with the fans as they bashed the platform for the terrible broadcast of the game. “Sony Liv’s live broadcast is very irritating,” wrote one user on Twitter. “Score board on Sony LIV reminds me of Internet Explorer,” wrote another.

Guys in BCCI. Must take Sony Liv to task for horrible display of scores on screen. And when Harshal comes out to bat they show Bhuvi s photo and statistics on screen. Sony Liv just doesn’t deserve to be there

How terrible has this telecast been by Sony Liv for the Ireland vs India T20 match today!
Not even getting into the coverage quality. Skipping frames, missing audio, scoreboard fails to move for 2-3 deliveries at a time.
