    The two ways round it are:
    - convinving step-father to remove my internet time out
    - finding £20 a month to fund a Sky Sports subscription and getting mother to agree to setting up a direct debit to her account.
    Removing your step-dad? Is this an option?

    Staying up past 12am to watch #4 in the world take on #5 in the world.

    You're keen as mustard. True lovers of cricket, it must be said.

    Follow on Cricinfo and on weekend’s stream in an internet bar or watch in a bar. First session (except Perth) starts before 9am Chinese time. Followed South Africa in Aus fairly easily last time around but my job then was more flexible and my internet connection at home was good.

    But there's no easy way out. My approach of toughing it out beyond lunch has been proven to fail consistently over the years.
    I used to work nights so for 2 series i was fine when i wasn't at work and used to listen most of the time when i was,last one was tough as i no longer worked nights and the amount of times i woke up at 4am cold on the sofa after dozing off during lunch was unreal.Have a plan this year,iron the kids school clothes and make their lunches during the interval.Should take up 40 minutes if i drag it out with a coffee.

    I believe Blackberrys have a Sky Sports app as well.

    Marcuss, I suggest you give your step-dad a good box to the face and tell him to stop being such a ****.
