Afro-Asian Cup (Asia XI v Africa XI) 2007 – when and where to watch online?

What is Afro-Asian Cup ?

From Wikipedia text :

The Afro-Asian Cup was a cricket competition played for the first time in 2005 and which is intended to run for at least three years. The stated aim is to provide funds for cricket’s grassroots in Asia and Africa.

The first Afro-Asian Cup in 2005 was a series of three one-day cricket matches played between an Asian XI and an African XI. Controversially, the games have been awarded official One-day International status. The teams were selected by former Test match players rather than by national selectors, a move that has also given rise to controversy.

From cricinfo :

The Afro-Asian Cup was the brainchild of Jagmohan Dalmiya, almost his last before he was hounded from office and, subsequently, the game

    on sopcast which channel is the 20/20 on

  4. Kalyan says:

    For 20/20 game chances are less and I believe for tomorrow’s game few sopcast channels will telecast the match.But some times initial hours its difficult to get on sopcast as match progresses there is highly likley that few channels will start
