The Cricket World Cup began on Saturday 14th February in Australia and New Zealand, with two matches on the same day: New Zealand v Sri Lanka in Christchurch, and Australia v England in Melbourne. Cricket is one of the biggest sports in terms of devotees and audience. Time is a key element in this sport, in which matches often stretch over long periods.

As Official Timekeeper of the competition, Hublot is also the first luxury brand to invest in cricket. It is visible on the scoreboards and throughout the VIP areas at all the grounds.

Hublot will be particularly interested in the performance of its ambassador, the distinguished captain of the Australian team, batsman Michael Clarke, for whom this World Cup marks a returns to the competition.

Hublot has developed a Classic Fusion Chrono Cricket watch, especially for fans.
