The short answer is probably 'nobody' (except that doesn't it have to be televised for them to have 3rd umpire decisions? You would think so). Hardly an ideal state of affairs in this day and age, but I suppose the ICC can't compel TV stations to show matches if they don't want to.

    I suppose this means Scotland - Australia won't be shown either.

    BBC Scotland are showing that one on Friday - don't think anyone is showing tomorrow's, not even TMS.

    Interesting to see who the Beeb bring in to commentate. Last time they had cricket on (India vs Scotland), they had a woman (think of West Indian origin) who was unforgettably bad.

    Shame England isn't on TV but I believe that was the case when they faced Ireland previously.

    Poor display, surely if Sky stuck it on it would get a few viewers, rather than whatever it is they will be showing in the daytime? I'm sure it wouldn't cost them too much to buy the rights for this?

    Don't think it was shown when we played them three years back either.

    Seems a bit strange that, to me.

    Nevermind, wouldn't have been able to watch anyway

    As it's being held in Belfast I presume it's the Irish board's rights to sell?

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    As with the ashes scheduling query earlier in the summer, I decided to put this to the ECB so hopefully they'll give me a satisfactory reason

    Was browsing Cricinfo today. I've always known Symonds is a very very good T20 player but his record is exceptional. Averages >40 with a SR of 172 IIRC. Puts Chris Gayle to shame.
    Disappointing with all of his discipline issues, terrific limited overs batsman. Wish I got to see more of him. Remember him bodychecking that streaker Great stuff.

    Why the **** is Ponting back in Australia?

    I love the guy like a brother, but seriously if he's going to come home in the middle of ODI and T20 tours (like he did against Pakistan where he skipped the whole tour back in March and like he's done here) then I really think they should hand the captaincy to Clarke in the shorter forms of the game, which would give him some experience for when he inevitably assumes the Test reins in a couple of years.

    Ponting is paid to play cricket, and in my view should not be coming home in the middle of tours, particularly after already having had a six week break earlier in the year after the SA tour.

    Yeah i heard he was back for a quick family visit. Poor form imo missing a couple of matches and not being with the team after losing a series. Poor leadership.

    The weather's great here but showers are forecast for later. I'll head down anyway in an hour or so and hopefully see a full game.

    Boyd Rankin's out with a groin strain. Big blow.
