Hi Guys,
The BD vs Zim series would not be shown in the UK due to lack of interest- the rights holders are looking for about GBP 10,000/- for the 5 ODIs however no channel has come forward for this/ if any one knows any sponsors or can raise this money the games would be available- Channel S is the only channel which had showed some interest.
Cheers,

Channel S is a selfish coward. These UK bangla channels are Bangladeshi by name they just bangla in disguise but they are lacking in patrioism. Pls dont argue ove rthis point. They never showed any interest to show bd matches while they were at home or away from the home. This is a shame.They should support our team even though they cant make a huge profit from the matches. They have to start from somewhere.I think there enough bd people here in the UK who are eagerly waiting to see our boys playing.

well.. you cant expect the guys from Channel S to buy the rights, rumour has it that they are close to going bankrupt as the channel is becoming unsustainable in the current freeview state. maybe if they start charging viewers a small fee through subscription then maybe one day they may buy the rights to show some cricket
