A feast for sports lovers

Share  ·   print   ·  

The problem of plenty is usually a nice problem to have. Maybe quite not, right now, if you are a sports fan.

If your interest in sport stretches beyond the football World Cup, you will find it tough to catch up with the rest of the sporting action from across the globe.

Live sport on television never had it so good, perhaps. The football in Germany is getting more exciting by the day of course, with the commencement of the knock-out matches last Saturday. There are already some mouth-watering clashes in the offing, like the Germany v Argentina quarterfinal encounter scheduled for June 30, for instance. On the same night - for us in India that is - India and West Indies begin their final and series-deciding Test in Jamaica.

The Wimbledon - the World's No. 1 racquet tournament - will have entered its fifth day.

The All England Lawn Tennis Championships (the real name of the Wimbledon tournament) is not the only major sporting event taking place in England currently, though. For the incurable cricket junkies, there are two more one-dayers left in the England-Sri Lanka one-day series (though it's not exactly the greatest ever cricket that the two teams have produced so far).

So folks, while it's raining outside, get hold of your remote control and retune ESPN, Star Sports and Ten Sports to consecutive channels on your television set; that could save some time. Sit back and enjoy.
