There's going to be two more though. Sorry i have no idea about American tv channels. I know that some websites are streaming it. Probably lots of Indian sites and probably some Australian ones.
Iam sure if you googled T-20 cricket in America you could find out more information.
I googled it and there appear to be alot of sites streaming.

I mostly found cricket boring because most of the action happens in one place. I've had many a boring PE lesson stuck fielding in a spot where nothing happens . I've also played cricket in a garden, in the middle of the road and on the beach. The beach one was interesting because if someone hit the ball in the sea we had to come to some agreement to call that a 6 because there was no way you'll get that ball back. Playing cricket in the middle of the road with friends was interesting because they were entertaining. You know that phrase BBW (ball before wicket), in our game with a certain pudgy boy it became belly before wicket. Every so often a car would try to pass by so we'd have to move the wicket step the side of the road and let it pass then reset up again and continue the game. I was terrible at batting, bowling and throwing, lil sis would scream, drop the bat and run when it was her turn to bat and the ball was bowled her way. If the ball was batted in grumpy old man's garden, that's a 6 because he'd never allow you to trespass his property to get that ball back. Oh and real cricket balls are painful if they hit you so most time we made do with tennis balls.

Don't expect me to watch a cricket match. Come to think of it I'm not one for spectator sport watching anyway. I either want to play or not watch no matter how terrible I may be at a game.

^^^^ Yeah i know eating crickets is becoming more popluar these days. i hate barking dogs and birds that whistle at night but crickets dont bother me.

^ ha yeah i played cricket in school. We had a good team. I thought i was really good and i was but when it got to the senior level i sucked.
We used to play on the street also and in parks and that. I have memories also of going into peoples yards to collect the ball.
Used tennis balls or ruber balls alot also.

I just watched the game in Houston. Was awesome
Big crowd again but as with the first game the crowd was pretty much 99.9% Indians with some pakastanis and Sri Lankens.
I guess its good for all the people from those places that live in America.

There was a really funny moment, one of the coaches was talking to two gorgeous American cheer leader girls showing them a chart and explainning(or trying to explain) the game to them, their reactions were gold.
It was probably a little scripted but was funny how they had no idea what he was on about.

And was a cool moment, a little Black kid that likes cricket made a comment "its good to see another version of baseball" ha ha

Well i dont think its going to catch on over there but this is cricketing royality. Was so good to see so many legends of the game and players i grew up watching from all around the world all playing on the same feild.

I've heard of it, but I can't say that I'm interested. I probably should at least give it a chance though before I just blow it off completely.

Only by people of non American backgrounds that live in America.

Its funny cos American sports are not popular around the world(as far as it beig on tv or being big here with big crowds and local leauges n that) but everyone at least knows of them, knows the rules, has seen it, has played it (well mainly baseball and basket ball, not so much American football), played video games of it, etc.

As a Kiwi Rugby is more important, but yeah, the BCs were pretty crap that last match. BYC was the only cricket I could get into playing, I was too crap when I played for a team. Played AFL for a few years though, that was good fun. Funny how the AFL '"World Cup" doesn't include Australia (for... obvious reasons)

Yeah well as an Aussie alot of Aussies prefer AFL or rugby over the cricket also.
Some even soccer...
Yeah the Black caps got smashed. Iam sure they will bat better in the next game, their bowling was the worry.
AFL world cup????
