We can watch the cricket? Really? Promise?

(very nearly entitled A Post especially for Anonymous of Sarajevo)

Given our total overexcitement of being able to watch most of the 20 20 Cricket series last month, you can imagine the excitement in the Brits In Bosnia household when it was discovered that not only can we watch the Ashes (the England vs. Australia cricket for the non-Brits amongst you), we can even watch it live.

No, Eurosport has not suddenly decided to broadcast it (for some bizarre reason 5 x 5 days of cricket was not top of their list to show in Bosnia). It turns out that you can watch the games live, online, for a small fee, if you live somewhere where the English Cricket Board hasn't sold the rights of the games to. So, to the fellow Brits in Bosnia, if you want to watch the matches or their highlights, ECBTv is where to go.

We will be watching far more of the cricket here than we would be able to in the UK, given that we refuse to pay Sky for the priviledge. The summer working schedule has just been thrown out of the window.

Hi A of S - Sorry, I keep deleting it by mistake. You should be able to find it in my profile now. If not leave me another comment and I'll set the IT guru (aka Dave) to work to see if he can work out what I have done with it.
