TEN Cricket was launched on 10 August 2010. Reaching over 55 million homes across the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia and Arab world. TEN Cricket was one of the three channels broadcast in the Indian subcontinent before re branding to TEN 3.[2] The channel has live broadcast rights of all international cricket held in Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies and Zimbabwe.

An international version of the channel was launched in the United States for the South Asian population.
