Root 5 for 8 says it all. Problem seems to be that the Indian Cricket Board are very rich and all powerful. If the ICC do anything at all it will probably just be a slap on the wrist.

I never saw a ball bowled live in the Test as the BBC never mentioned it had started and only mentioned it after the first days play had concluded. Their cricket coverage is fuckin appalling for what is the national summer sport. Of course they do wank themselves silly over Wimbledon when tennis appears for its annual fortnightly airing. Cliff Richard is a massive tennis fan which says it all really.

Yes I watched some of the First and Second Tests on Channel 4. I knew the Third Test was a Day/Nighter but what with the time differences and the random days the matches start I lose track. So I would have thought that on BBC Breakfast Sports News they would at least announce the England squad before the Test started. No fuckin chance.
