Asian Television Network International Limited (ATN), Canada’s largest South Asian Broadcaster and Canada’s largest Distributor of World Class Cricket, announces it has secured the exclusive Canadian Broadcast Rights for the UNITECH CUP 2006, triangular series featuring 7 ODIs between Sri Lanka, India & South Africa.
The tournament begins on 14th August with Sri Lanka hosting South Africa and concludes with the final taking place on 29th August. The three sides will face each other twice in a round robin format with the top two going through to the final. The Sri Lankan team will be oozing with confidence following their 5-0 demolition of England in the ODI series earlier in the summer and their memorable 2-0 Test series victory over South Africa earlier this month.
Meanwhile India will be looking to bounce back after their disappointing one day series in the Caribbean where much was expected from them but they were unable to deliver. The South Africans will have the memory of their last ODI match when they chased down a record 435 run target to claim victory over Australia.
