The ICC Twenty20 World Championship will be starting from tomorrow. But I will not be able to watch it on TV as I don't get the channels here through local cable feeds and I am not ready to spend a lot of money installing required subscription enabled sat receiver scrapping the old one. So again I am resorting to the net for the video. And of course I will be hearing BBC commentaries while I am working.
I have a high quality internet connection but sometimes I do not get quality feeds, and frequent stuck ups of the stream can annoy but nevertheless something is better than nothing.
