For those of you that missed the news on Twitter, the 2013 Champions Trophy will be carried live and in its entirety in the USA on ESPN3. I would like to thank Twitter user @shrivastavrahul for passing on the news.
I looked around for a press release from the Worldwide Leader, but found nothing. The matches are showing up on ESPN3’s site though, so I am of course confident that this is actually happening.
Now, I know it is not everyone’s favorite tournament, but having the option to watch it is better than not having the option to watch it.
I will be updating the World Cricket Internet Schedule when the tournament is closer. In the meantime, here is a link to Cricinfo’s match schedule.
This is just further proof that ESPN believes that there is a market for cricket in America – whether the audience is ex-pats or not does not matter. And once ESPN latches onto something, they really tend to run with it. This could be an interesting few years.

Do you know of they will air the final live on tv like they did with World TwentyTwenty Cup?
Honestly, not sure. I will keep an eye out.
