Nice to have it now, but isn't it little too early considering the trend. Normally what we see is, websites come up just before hours of play. But definitely there will be a legal broadcast from willow that we can say now.

Doesn't willow restrict some given countries? It'll be helpful if the members know about that early on, than waiting for willow to do the magic in the last minute :)

What will happen ultimately is kind of open secret. Willow will broadcast for some countries excluding USA, UK, Can etc. Others will buy from willow and broadcast illegally. We'll buy from these illegals as they are cheap and with little option. We'll later show our unhappiness to these guys. I'm thinking about how much the Dish network may charge this time. Last time I paid them $299 to see Vas taking four wickets in his first over against BD!

Priceless...Faridpurbhai imagine what will happen this time when lanka and Ind both gaining back their forms. Not sure if we will have clowns like that match I believe (Ash) was one of them. Hope he realizes what happened. None of our national team batsmen performing good so far in premium leagues.

BC bhai, yes, Ash was one of those fours. He is to blame definitely. But I don't want to blame our whole team, specially people like SN, Saqib, Aft etc. I Just read some article on Pak preview on different newspapers. They are not optimistic about Mohammad-Yousuf-Youhana in the coming test. Everyone is mentioning that he is out of international level for almost two months. Now compare it with our players. All of them are out of international level since Champions T. You can't say Zim at international level while facing Ind and SL, specially when they are flying high. Our players didn't get opportunity to take-off even.

Not to sidetrack the topic, but with the surging popularity of P2P streaming, we'll likely get just as good streaming as willow come WC days. NFL, NBA and NHL fans already have communities dedicated to P2P streaming. HD streams are growing popular too. It's great for people with no access to a legal (or illegal) stream package.

don't worry about it, it'll pop up when it's due...and that'll be just a couple of days before WC. If you want to be worry free, you can count on the popular Bangladeshi sites that we have used sopcast for all these days...they're definitely going to have it. On top of that, I beleive some Pakistani, Indian, and may be Carribean sites will do the sopcast too.

Yep it does. During the Ashes series, some guys from UK ran and HD stream. We had a constant 700 kbit/s feed. The quality was great. Hopefully something similar will pop up in time. TVU used to have some too.

no you dont need visa, just a valid passport.

Since January 23, 2007, a new American law requires everyone entering the United States BY AIR to have a valid passport.
Canadians can continue to use such documents as their birth certificates and drivers' licence to cross the Canada-U.S. border BY LAND AND SEA for at least another year.

yeah any matches between full national sides of test nations (BD-NZ) and ODI nations is classified as an ODI.

they might de-classify it tho if its a WC warm-up (tho that makes absolutely no logical sense).

humm....well I dont know what ICC's point of view is for this but I think that they should not give ODI status to these games. Cuz most teams experiment in this kinds of matches. So they might even loose for these wild experiments and I dont see why they should be penalized for doing so. Thus, warm up matches should be "warm up matches" and the intent should purely be to practice. If there is an ODI status then what ICC is trying to say is that, hey guys, this is a pre test but it will be graded and included in the final grade!!!!
