Despite the many hurdles and the lack of cricket infrastructure the coverage by TV Asia is moving forward and improving each time. Students are getting opportunities to try out their sports announcer skills, or dreams, as well as play on TV.
Though we, the cricket community, treat start times as suggestions, American College Cricket has pioneered the playing of 3 matches in a day which is now used by practically every tournament organiser in the USA & Canada.
‘TV Asia is proud to be associated with American College Cricket in televising the regionals and the Spring break Championship Cricket matches in USA & Canada”, stated Mr. H.R. Shah Chairman of TV Asia. “This agreement reaffirms TV Asia’s commitment to be the Voice and Mirror of the South Asian Community in United States and Canada,”
”American College Cricket pioneered cricket promotion on Facebook, Twitter and now Google +, to reach the Cricket audience in the USA and Canada and was the first to webstream domestic cricket in the USA in March 2010. TV Asia’s mission and strategy is geared towards the American and Canadian audience so they are the ideal Media Partners”, American College Cricket’s founder and President Lloyd Jodah stated.
“Through this partnership members of American College Cricket and its associated student organisations have a major media entity now, TV Asia, to cover your accomplishments and provide an outlet for your talents,and your educational,cultural and sporting activities.”
