After a scandal-ridden and disappointing season of IPL 6, Indian fans can now hope for some respite thanks to the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy in England. Like me, you're probably wondering where and when to watch all the action. Remember, they're playing in England, so it's important know when the Champions Trophy matches will be telecast live. That way, you can adjust your schedule ahead of time. The tournament begins on June 6th!
In India, the channels showing the ICC Champions Trophy are Star Sports 2 and Star Cricket. If you prefer hindi commentary for the Champions trophy, tune into Star Sports 2 and if you want to hear it in English, watch it on Star Cricket.
What about the live-telecast match times? England is in a different time-zone, so you'll probably have to make adjustments in your daily schedules. According to the schedule, an ICC Champions Trophy match begins at 3 p.m at the earliest. Some matches begin at 5 p.m. Not bad at all. It's a great way to enjoy an evening, especially with the monsoons in full flow.
I would like to see India put on a terrific performance in this important ODI tournament. We've been hearing too much about the spot-fixing scandal and it's high time the Indian cricket players redeemed themselves with some awesome stuff on the international arena. Perhaps, a Champions Trophy win for India will help us forget about the scandal and enjoy the sport once more.
