Netflix, whether we like it or not, has been home to many of our favorite (and least favorite) genres. Some people like it soft––preferring romance and comedies––while some people are into action and horror. We won’t talk about any of that today. As sports all around the world have deprived fans of what they love, the streaming platform has delivered during those troubling times––releasing the likes of The Last Dance and Formula 1: Drive to Survive.
Well, now we’re heading into Women’s Cricket. Netflix has an upcoming documentary covering the recently concluded ICC Women’s T20 cricket season and it will be coming to the platform on the 14th of August, 2020 in almost all Netflix regions globally.
Titled Beyond the Boundary: ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Australia 2020, the documentary will be taking you behind-the-scenes of the event as well as the biggest, toughest highlights during all the games from early 2020 to the 8th of March when the event ended as––SPOILER ALERT––Australia brings home the bacon.
Here is the official synopsis from Netflix itself:
“With highlights from the 2020 tourney, this program offers an inside look at the global showcase for women’s cricket — the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup.”
T20 cricket, basically, is the shortened version of traditional cricket. As you may know, traditional cricket can take up to a couple of days––requiring a much larger commitment to the sport.
Netflix’s arsenal of the sports genre has been… underwhelming. Though very charismatic, there are only a handful of titles that flourished with the streaming platform including those series aforementioned in the introduction and Last Chance U.
However, sports documentaries have been scarce for the platform. Good thing F1: Drive to Survive exists as it probably is the streaming platform’s best bet––covering the behind-the-scenes and the biggest dramas and stories during the F1 season.
