It's typical England, they'd have been happy with 300 when 350 was needed. They're 10 years behind everyone else.

Did it hurt your feelings to listen to cricket pundits who don't think england are going to win the world cup. I have heard 2 podcasts since the first ODI loss to Australia last week say that they are still going to win.

Errr but England ARE going to win the world cup

Ryan Harris nearly played for England as well

Sam Hain (what a great name) is the latest ex-Aus under 19s to declare for England and is supposedly poo poo hot, but tbf from the sounds of it he always wanted to play for England

Anderson is a massive stinkyhole but he's nowhere near as bad as Warner and anyone who says otherwise is an apologist for racism and thuggery and probably has an anti-asylum seeker agenda.

It's Australia's fault Anderson is a stinkyhole anyway, he never said anything to anyone until Langer called him a "pussy".

Getting some cricket back on terrestrial TV would help - its hard to get people to care about a game they can't really ever watch. I'm not actually sure whether there's even any free highlights of the World Cup this time - I can't remember there being any of the Ashes last year as well!

Certiain world cup highlights have to be shown on terrestrial as part of the "crown jewels" thing. Unless I've imagined it, last time I think the deal was that no one else could show the highlights show until Sky had shown theirs, hence they were on at about 1 in the morning. I dunno if it's the same this time but I wouldn't be surprised. Sky are a benefit for England and for viewers overall but no way should they have such a monopoly. At least one test, one ODI and one t20 should be shown on terrestrial every summer.

I think the ECB are beginning to realise they shouldn't have shown their hand to Sky so early. There are lots of murmurings that the domestic t20 comp should be on terrestrial, probably brought about by the success of the Big Bash, which isn't a particularly good standard and is pretty much the definition of polishing a turd, but morons flock to it.

James was found not guilty of that spurious charge. I won't forward your post onto the ECB legal team but in future please don't libel.

apparently the last labour government were considering putting home ashes tests back on the a list but they couldn't change it before the last election and the coalition haven't touched it

I never agreed with that tbh, it just feeds the perception that the home Ashes series is the only thing that matters.

Of course the elephant in the room is that none of the terrestrial broadcasters actually want test cricket. They'd have it if they were given it, but they're not going to go out of their way to get it.

Lionel Richie

If live cricket was going to be shown anywhere on terrestrial it would probably be Channel 5. They actually do a really good job with the highlights shows considering they must have to have a box and commentators throughout the whole day for the sake of an hour of highlights, and then get it wrapped up half an hour beforehand, or on the fly if play goes past half 6. I reckon they only do it in the hope that they'll eventually get thrown some scraps in the form of a live game or two.

Lionel Richie
Nov 14, 2004



They use the host broadcaster feed, which is Sky in this case, but they've got actual commentators live throughout the day and do their own interviews and whatnot, so it must be a pretty major operation considering it's all for one hour of highlights, especially when play is still going on when the show actually starts.

Lionel Richie
Nov 14, 2004



Yeah they've really hosed those prices up. I've put Amla, de Villiers, Warner, Smith, Johnson and Philander in my team and only had to balance it out by buying one cheapo I've never heard of.

Stokes has one good game every 10, otherwise he is really poo poo. Really loving poo poo. Single figure scores and going at 8 an over game after game after game sort of poo poo. He might or might not turn out to be a good player, but England weren't wrong not to pick him.

They were getting worried that Jimmy T (who is a cracking lad) would blast England to victory so they contrived to remove him in an unfair manner. It's disgraceful.

They would have smashed 111 off those last 53 balls if those dastardly pro [opponent] umpires hadn't robbed them of victory on the [random poo poo tailender] dismissal Seriously, we should focus on that, because apart form that lovely decision, England were far better than [opponent]. E***They even got a hat trick!!!***

Next thing you know they will want DRS gone. Interchange England with India. loving crybabies.

It's actually quite a big deal if the umpires don't know the laws of the game. The fact that it cost England the victory is incidental in this matter.
