I'm here...where are you?
Coverage started at 10pm in this series and so i'm only around for a few overs and then I'm zonked.
Also 'willow tv' seems to be run for the east Indians (or Indians as you would say) because about two overs in, they decided to cut to someone going through all the people chosen for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL..!!
So coverage of the game was cut for 20 or so minutes while we had to listen to the ramblings of some guy. totally unprofessional, but they are playing to their audience so they think.
An interesting fact and/or psa (public service announcement) that I remembered when typing the East Indian / Indian comment:
In north america, people from Pakistan, and the wider community, consider the word 'Paki' a highly charged racist term (like the N-word). It was interesting to find that out because I didn't think that Pakistani's in aust thought that was a bad word. I guess here, history has used it in the way the n-word has been.
Note: I'm not having a go at anyone or entering politics - just suggesting that if you travel to Nth america, don't have it printed on a t-shirt (lol) and that it was interesting to find that out.
- a draw 'yawn' Maybe they need to get some experience in pitch preparation. I wonder how the one dayers and the T-20 are going to go?
