Does anybody know if we will get highlights of the Test Matches on the
BBC? Last time there was about 15 seconds on the evening news because
Sky had the exclusive rights to the games. I thought the BBC had struck
a deal with Sky for highlights of this series though. Anybody have any
info?

I had certainly thought so, but now they are saying that that is not
the case :-(

Hopefully not, at least not until we start playing well :-)

There is no coverage on BBC TV unfortunately - and our wonderful heritage
secretary recently intimated that he saw no reason why home Test matches
should have to be prevented from migrating to Sky - I think I could give
him a few reasons (send Gus Fraser round to see him?)
