TORONTO, CANADA, June 5, 2008, Asian Television Network International Limited (ATN) (TSX-SAT), Canada’s pioneer South Asian broadcaster and the country’s largest distributor of world class cricket announced today that it has secured the Canadian broadcast rights for the Tri nation series between India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. These matches will be shown live on CBN across Canada and rebroadcast on ATN-Cricket Plus.

These games take on an added importance to international cricket fans with Bangladesh’s upset victory over India at the 2007 World Cup. Each team has a number of their World Cup players participating in this series as well as some outstanding young players keen for international recognition.  Consistent performances in the domestic tournaments and in the Indian Premier League (IPL) helped Yusuf Pathan and Pragyan Ojha earn One-day berths in the Indian team for the tri-series in Bangladesh and the subsequent Asia Cup in Pakistan.Pragyan and Yusuf are the only new faces in the 15-member one-day squad. Yusuf was also a part of India's Twenty20 World Championship winning team in South Africa last year.

Pakistan cricket selectors Monday included five fast bowlers in a 16-man squad to take part in next week's one-day tri-series in Bangladesh. Fit-again Mohammad Asif leads the strong pace attack, which also includes Umar Gul, Sohail Tanveer, Rao Iftikhar and rookie left-arm paceman Wahab Riaz. Suspended paceman Shoaib Akhtar was not considered.

Bangladesh have named uncapped pace bowler Dollar Mahmud in a 14-man squad for next month's one-day international series with India and Pakistan. Bangladesh also recalled wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim and batsman Mehrab Hossain for the Tri-Nation series.

These games will be a treat not only for cricket fans of the sub continent but will also entertain all cricket-loving people who have made their home in Canada. ATN is currently broadcasting the England and New Zealand series followed by England and South Africa and English County Cricket.
