WHERE'S THE CRICKET - Ashes to Ashes



WHERE'S THE CRICKET??

Whilst I have made Indonesia my home, pay my taxes and rave at the lack of leadership and short term greed as any responsible person should (despite the more xenophobic amongst us insisting we are guests, sorry guys welcome to the new world of globisation). There are times when the longing for the country of your birth becomes a weight only a draught horse could bear.

Today is one of those times. The Ashes tour has started and there is no bloody coverage !!

Ah the ASHES....England and Australia play a number of 5 day long cricket matches to decide who gets to take the ASHES home. Not to be able to bear witness to this, is tantamount to denying your heritage. (More on the Ashes history later if you want).

WHERE'S THE CRICKET??

In Indonesia we have pay tv (of sorts) called Indovision on which you can find endless suburban english and italian soccer matches (yawn), roller girls (sexy but pointless), sheep dog trials (plead the 5th), caber tossing (tough on mr caber)but cricket??? Not on your life. I would have thought with the large Indian, English, Oz, NZ population, the cricket was a "monty" but nope, just plenty of repeats of TNA "wrestling" ...BUGGER!!

Still on cricket, I notice the Indians are still pissed at the oz team who gave the "short shift" to the stuffed shirt official who would not get out of the road for the team photo after Australia's magnificent win recently in India. Bad luck guys..winners is grinners..

Back to Indovision, Lose the Ads!! Your service is already over priced for what is provided and lame ads only pisses paying customers off. Certainly, I will never bank BCA after the current and endlessly repeated commercials

Once again .....WHERE'S THE CRICKET!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I see this was put 10 days ago, but I know all the matches are being shown live at Aphrodite in Klub Rasuna and Sportsmans near Blok M plaza.

Also Kabelvision has it on an extra Pay-Per-View deal, so if you have a friend with that you're stoked.
