Bangladesh vs West Indies 1st Test TV Coverage:
T Sports and GTV generally broadcast the Bangladesh cricket team’s matches live inside the country. But due to some unsure reasons this time neither of these 2 TV channels has bought the TV coverage rights for the Bangladesh vs West Indies series. With just a few hours to go, still, any deal hasn’t been confirmed. So almost certainly the Bangladesh vs West Indies 1st Test will not be shown live in Bangladesh on any reputed channel. In fact, the entire series might face the same fate.
Why Bangladesh vs West Indies 1st Test is not on TV?
The cricket-crazy Bangladeshi fans are definitely disappointed to hear such news. Although BCB couldn’t clarify anything and the spokesperson claimed it has been a miscommunication between rights holder TSM and the local TV channels. The Bangladesh Cricket Board representative also unofficially requested and urged the local broadcasters to buy the rights. But till now, no confirmation has come and the viewers in BD will have to go for alternative options.
However, ESPN Caribbean will televise the Bangladesh vs West Indies 1st Test Live in the Caribbean Region. On the other hand, BT Sport 1 and 3 will telecast the game live in the UK.
