I'm one of the minority of viewers with a satellite dish so I've been able
to watch the coverage live from the WI. The coverage is OK, the commentators
know what they are talking about, Gower is quite good. Its not quite as good
as the Beeb coverage though, the adverts at the end of every over are intrusive
and I was horrified to see the "duck" appear on the screen when Simmons got
out in the ODI, that should go back to Australia where it belongs.
I understand that Neil Kinnock (the man who won the last election for John
Major :-)) has been complaining that the BBC should be showing the cricket.
Well I suppose he has a point but before Sky came along the BBC never showed
any cricket from the WI, similarly on last years india tour they showed
tests from india which the BBC had never done. On the last tour in 1990 Sky
showed the tests live and the BBC showe highlights in the evening, maybe they
should be doing the same this time.
The way england played yesterday I think the non-Sky viewers are the fortunate
just my 0.02 ecu's worth
