Millions of Indian viewers were a disappointed lot on Friday. They were expecting some exciting live action with India opting to bat first in the Test at Chittagong.

However, there was no sign of the matches on Tata DTH, Dish TV and most of the local cable operators.

Probably Tata DTH and Dish TV, worried about Neo sports for money and professional reasons , were banking on DD to show the match live, but the state-run organization, which goes in top gear in approaching courts when it comes to ODIs, chose not to telecast the test match on its network.

With even commentary not available on Radio, the viewers are well and truly stunned. Much more than the blows Bangladesh have delivered in the match so far.
