    on sunday morning i couldn't catch the video action from the Old Trafford Test, but had plenty of options to watch the Afro-Asian.
    i tuned in a little, seen Dhoni without a helmet and a bowler making some sadly bored launches... and i tuned off.
    no comparison between that and the intensity of the Test match.

    Nah, me neither. Couldn't really care less, because that seems to be the same as the attitude of most bar the TV companies.

    Over 72% negative and thats from a country whos players are playing in it and from the website of the channel that have paid for the rights.

    Wouldn't imagine many people would be surprised, TBH - I'm certainly not.

    Haha, good spot. Not a bad song IMO.

    Anyway I kept a bit of an eye on the Afro-Asia Cup, mainly to keep track of individual players as I couldn't care less about the result. I can see where all the dissatisfaction is coming from though.

    Well someone must be interested, otherwise the TV companies wouldn't have purchased the rights... And the crowds are good too right?
