    i hate to disappoint you, but finding cricket on tv in philly is a near impossible task. to be fair, the problem isn't with the bars but rather with the international television feeds. setanta and fox sports world have gone through so many changes in the past 5-10 years and unfortunately now focus primarily on soccer. even rugby can be tricky to find these days (unless it's england whose playing); i used to watch the super 12 (yes, now the super 14) regularly on the old fsw. every now and then, i call all of the english and irish bars/pubs in the city and ask about an important match going on and ask if they have it. when they say no, i recommend that they look into providing it. no one has changed their habits yet, but it makes me feel as though i am semi productive about it at least.....:)

    if you find anything, please post back here.

      I've scoured several locations in the city and if you're interested in watching the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup final match between India and Sri Lanka then check the following page:

      and/or check with the bar itself, Tir Na Nog (www.tirnanogphilly.com). The manager appears to be willing to accommodate us if there are enough people to make it worth it. If you're considering it please check with the bar to ensure they will be showing it, and if you're serious about attending please RSVP to the following e-mail address:
