Australia were keenly following the cricket when the team was playing in India, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

They [audience figures]show that the three most watched programs on pay TV in Australia last week were cricket telecasts from India on Fox Sports. In order, these were the sixth and seventh one-dayers, and the one-off Twenty20 match.

A pay-TV audience is considered pretty good if it exceeds 100,000, given that only 29per cent of Australian households have access to the product. The matches in India all topped 100,000 and some did much better.
