View Full Version : Formal Announcement of Asia Cup in SL

I think we may have a problem. The final schedule is that India & UAE will play on the same day that Bangladesh & Hong Kong will play.

And since the Asia Cup will be broadcasted (most probably) by Ten Sports channel, the local TV broadcaster in SL for the moment, so may be Ten Sports channel has the possibility of showing the India-UAE match, and thus leaving out the BD-HongKong match to be shown later.

Not that it matters to me, because I'll be in UK on 16th July, and will return to Bangladesh on 18/19th of July.

I don't see BTV making any arrangements to cover the game live. We can't even cover a cricket match properly at BNS, let alone do it abroad. I guess we are at the mercy of the broadcasters now. It won't matter much anyway. We will thump HK.
