Is there a bar/ethnic restaurant anyone would recommend in Manhattan (or easily accessible by subway in QNS or BK) that shows cricket?
Specifically, I'm interested in the Australia-India T20 match this Sunday, March 30, 2014 ... it's on at 9:30am, so perhaps that rules out most of the
places which would otherwise be options?
had a bad experience during the ashes at Cricketers arms - went once and it was fine and tried to go back and they werent open (even though they said they would be).
the australian is a pretty good bet if you are cheering for Aus or dont mind people who are. i think ive been there before 1130am (when their website says they open) but i just checked their sports schedule and it shows aussie rules football, and no cricket - you might want to call or tweet at them to ask.
Oh hi everyone ... thanks for the pointers. I'll be sure to call about early opening [for "normal cricket", not an issue since it lasts all day ... but this is the "short form" of the game] and about competing sports [Back in SF, needless to say it was impossible to find the Indian Wells finals during March Madness, so not optimistic this time either] ... or maybe I should just be satisfied catching the Arsenal - Man City game on Sat ... I've watched a couple of soccer matches at CENTRAL BAR near Astor Place, but didnt especially like the food there ... although about par for that type of venue I suppose. Wish I could have gotten a CORNER BISTRO BURGER at CENTRAL BAR.

er, I am from IND although I dont hate AUS since Ricky Ponting and Andrew Symonds retired. Hence the question if some say West Indian or Indian Subcontinent-type place might have the games on ... perhaps just for staff interest.
I see The Australian has AFL games on their sports schedule ... it seems odd not to watch the national team play, but maybe it's a schedule issue or it's a Football-bias.
