Sri Lanka vs Pakistan 2009 Live in Ten Sports TV Channel

Pakistan is now in Sri Lanka to face the home team in a three-match test and five-match ODI series alongside a twenty20 international. Test series begins from 4 July with the first test match at Galle International Stadium. This is going to be the first test match for both Pakistan and Sri Lanka since the deadly terror attack on Sri Lankan team bus last March that left six security personnel and a bus driver dead, besides several injured including few Sri Lankan cricketers and their assistant coach. No doubt, both teams would like to put it behind their memory ahead of the series.

Pakistan is now full of confidence after winning the twenty20 world cup, while Sri Lanka also has enough reasons to remain confident as they finished the tournament winning runners up trophy. It is pretty much certain that the focus is now totally on cricket. Both sides would like to exploit their advantages to the fullest in order to dominate the opposition. Though Sri Lanka will have home advantage, Pakistan may not face any big problems because the condition would be pretty much similar to Pakistan. However, one thing is for sure that spinners could play a big role in the series, given the spinner friendly wickets of the sub-continent. Overall, we can expect a highly competitive series between two Asian powerhouses of cricket.

I know many of you are now eagerly waiting to watch the matches live on television. However, I am very sorry to say that I can not give you lots of information regarding the television coverage of the series, except that Ten Sports is going to cover the entire tour of Pakistan including the test and ODI series as well as the only twenty20 international. I checked some other popular sports channels, but could not find any other channel which is going to broadcast the series.

Ten Sports is one of the most popular sports channels in Asia, especially in South Asia and Middle East. However, sports fans from Europe and some other parts of Asia can also watch the series on Ten Sports.
