Ten Sports to bring Live telecast of Sri Lanka’s Caribbean tour

Cricket is back on the television menu, what with the ICL tournament underway and the upcoming IPL tournament, Future Cup, India-SA Test series and Sri Lanka-West Indies series. Whipping some more cricket fever, Taj TV’s Ten Sports will telecast Live Sri Lanka’s tour of the Caribbean this month. Sri Lanka and West Indies would play two Test matches and three ODIs.

Ten Sports had recently renewed its partnership with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for another five years to distribute television coverage of all cricket sports that would be played in the West Indies between 2008 and 2012. Also, Ten Sports has the broadcasting right to the Middle-East and South-East Asia, and would also distribute the events worldwide, with the exception of the UK, Ireland and the Caribbean.

The first Test match would commence from March 22, while the ODI matches would commence from April 10.

Ten Sports is available in over 50 million cable and satellite homes worldwide. The channel broadcasts cricket from Sharjah, West Indies, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Zimbabwe, the Indian Sub-continent and Asia, as well as to the US and Canada (Cricket Plus), the Middle-East and North Africa.

Ten Sports also owns the exclusive rights in its Sub-continent territories for the WWE, the UEFA Champions League, the US Open and Hockey World Cup.
