    Hopefully India start this series better for a change than what they have done in the first test in the recent past.


    Edit- First Post.

    Will we have a thread for the tour game, and will it be televised?

    Should most likely be televised. Can't see Sky/Espnstar letting that oppurtunity go.

    And i think we already have a tour game thread?

    Btw, it is gun that this series will be covered by EspnStar and not those ****wits at Ten Cricket or Neo Cricket.

    Anyone know whether they will be sending their own team there as they usually do or will we be getting the Sky commentary/coverage as they are the same network?

    They aren't?

    Do they usually broadcast cricket there and do you get Star Cricket or only StarSports and Espn?
    Pretty odd considering it is not football season as well.

    I am sure they will be sending their own team(Harsha, Alan Wilkins, Ravi shastri, Wasim akram, sunil gavaskar, saurav ganguly(maybe)) and both sky sports and espn team will mix these people to commentate. But I am sure both sky and espn will have seprate pre match discussion and post match discussion show

    6) Suresh Raina (?)
    7) MS Dhoni
    8) Harbhajan Singh
    9) Zaheer Khan
    10)Ishant Sharma
    11)Shantakumaran Sreesanth/Praveen Kumar/Munaf Patel

    They are but the rights are with another Cable TV company. Getting it now would mean an extra $100 which is just stupidly expensive.

    Any idea if Sky will have an Indian commentator for the series?

    Hoping for Ganguly, hoping Gavaskar stay off our airwaves. Guy's a tool.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!
