    Natwest Challenge

    I'm in the USA and I need some info on this series. I haven't seen an India v England matchup since worldcup. Anyone have any knowledge as to how I may go about watching this series.
    I have Dish Network (dish500 system). I can't seem to figure out who is showing this in the US. Is it one of the Indian Channels (Zee or Sony) or is it a PPV (pay-per-view) event?

    Can someone let me know please.

    regards,
    nokia_guy

    I believe it's one of the tools of Rupert Murdoch's evil empire, and hence owned by the land of the koalas.

    I would never criticise Packer.

    Without him, I fear Cricket may not exist as a sport.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Dish is showing Holland and Champions Trophy

    Keep checking on this page

    http://www.dishnetwork.com/content/p...et/index.shtml

    They always manage to show India games in North America, if not dish, some South Asian International channel then

    Dish has a new Broadband feature as well

    It had existed fine enough for 99 years and 4 months.
    Don't see how his temporary theft of the players to play cricket comparable in status to Lashings matches helped anyone and I never will do.
    In the end both parties got what they wanted but it could just as easily have destroyed the whole game IMO.
