View Full Version : ESPN Star will not broadcast BD's tour of SA

Well what can I say? The only thing that we can do now is DEMAND to Bangladesh cricket board to cancel its contract with ESPN Star to broadcast Bangladesh's home series.

Because during the last home series of Bangladesh, BTV and Ekushey TV have managed pretty well by themselves to broadcast live Pakistan's tour of Bangladesh.

So, if they deny us live matches over at South Africa - (imagine - how important this tour for Bangladesh is - just one tour before the world cup), it will be a JUST PUNISHMENT for ESPN STAR.

ESPN Star Sports will not broadcast live Bangladesh's tour of South Africa.

For anybody who lives in England, sky sports are showing all Bangladesh matches against South Africa, so they are very lucky.

For those in USA, it doesnt make any difference for us.

ESPN Star Sports will show Sri Lanka's tour of South Africa.

Big difference between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. BIgger diff between what Bangladesh can be and how they are playing right now. So, I guess Star is waiting for our players to get their act together, GROW some self respect, Stand up and be MEN.

Guess it is not financially viable for them to cover our matches.

Which this means also that ESPN Star might not broadcast West Indies tour to Bangladesh in this November-December.

Yet, they had bought the rights to hold that series.
