Vantage point

Tuesday, February 11, 2003

This time's World Cup is being broadcast on SETMAX, a wannabe channel, if there ever was one. Their catchline is -

"MAX - Deewana Bana de", which translates to "MAX - Will make you go mad".

It is succeeding in my case. I am going mad with anger at how badly they are covering this world cup. It has to be the most pathetic attempt at sports broadcasting in history. Coming in second would be the time when SETMAX had telecast rights for the ICC Mini World Cup.

You have bimbettes commentating, hardly any stats being shown, thee don't even display the number of overs bowled all the time. All in all a very irritating way to watch the World Cup.
