    oh, the TV channels we have here are crap. there used be star sports, but not anymore :-(
    the only option for a sports fan is to get Cable TV to get full sports coverage, but it's expensive.

    I don't think there's any coverage of it in Australia either.

    Yep. Listening to it on BBC radio and watching on cricinfo. No TV coverage here at all.

    Vaas bowling very nicely.

    What do you think of the commentators Faaip? They tend to vary from county to county, this London lot are alright but my favourites are the Derby commentators, especially if Chris Bassano helps them out. Unfortunately the BBC comms tend to make a lot of mistakes "Greg" Flower for example.

    They're nothing special I don't think, but they aren't awful like Dean Jones or Jeff Thomson either. Certainly not painful to listen to.

    Anyone else finding the cricinfo score lagging WAY behind?
