ESPN is again partnering with American College Cricket, to promote ESPN3 ‘s coverage of the 2013 Champions Trophy from June 6 to 23,as it did for the 2012 T20 World Cup, and 2012 Champions League tournaments.

“Its easy to understand that ESPN & American College Cricket working together to promote ESPN’s cricket broadcasts in the USA is good for the game. A major tenet of American College Cricket from its inception, was to make the game more visible and we’ve televised 24 matches on TV Asia, with more to come. And whilst we’ve pushed for the shortest format,T20,to be on ESPN TV ; ODIs and Tests are great for online viewing” , American College Cricket President Lloyd Jodah said.
