Neo Prime acquires Asia Cup 2014 rights

Jan 24 2013, 5:06am CST | by

Mumbai, Jan 24 (IANS) Sports TV channel Neo Prime has sealed the Indian broadcast rights for the multi-nation Asia Cup cricket tournament being held in 2014.

Mumbai, Jan 24 — Sports TV channel Neo Prime has sealed the Indian broadcast rights for the multi-nation Asia Cup cricket tournament being held in 2014.

The Asia Cup was conceived in 1984 to promote goodwill amongst Asian countries. The last edition was held in Bangladesh in 2012, which saw Pakistan retaining the title with a nail-biting win in the final against the hosts.

In a press statement here Thursday, Neo said it also secured the first right to renew for the next three Asia Cup tournaments leading up to 2020. The rights acquired cover primary viewership market of India as well as Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

In India the cumulative reach of the Asia Cup 2012 was 122 million. This effectively means that almost 60 percent of TV viewers in India watched some part of the Asia Cup 2012.

South Africa's Return to Top of Test Rankings Was Cricket at Its Gripping Best

Jul 28 2014 6:04pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

When Gary Kirsten was in charge of the South African team, he used to talk about “absorbing and transferring pressure.” He’d use these buzzwords whenever South Africa were in a spot of bother. Whether that was after a bad day in the field or in real tough times like during their tour of Australia back in 2012. Kirsten is no longer coach, but he was with the team for the second Test match against Sri Lanka, and there is no doubt that he would have been ...

Jul 28 2014 1:17pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Sri Lanka came agonisingly close to pulling off a fantastic win over South Africa and drawing the two-match Test series. But it wasn't to be as South Africa dug in and clung on for an impressive draw. Sri Lanka had their moments of individual brilliance, with their spinners in particular being very good in the second Test. However, their batsmen let them down spectacularly on more than one occasion, leaving far too much work for the senior players to do. The hosts made three changes in the ...
