Recipe for disaster imo. Can't remember the last time ITV did justice to a sporting event.
Great news, T20 is a perfect fit for free-to-air TV. More fool the ECB for not getting some English domestic T20 out there.
Makes sense what with it being free on YouTube.
I still expect it'll shift over to the likes of Sky after a few seasons, once the audience and whatnot is built up. But it's certainly a damn sight better than friggin daytime TV in the meantime.
Great news, at last some cricket on free to view tv.
You nick it, i'll catch it then i will send you the scorecard for the next year.
Damn you brits, you get to have your own commentators.

Being ITV the commentary will be direst of the dire, but joke firmly on everyone else who will continue having to hear about DLF Maximum sixes and Citi moments of success.
Can cheap and sickly confectionery be turned into plastic? If so ITV will manage it.
Knowing ITV we'll have Clive "that night in Barcelona" Tyldesley as a commentator.
Was actually thinking they'll probably bring in the likes of Irani and Gough from Talk Sh*te for the studio segments.
I obviously couldn't care less about the IPL as with all Twenty20, but I don't think having something which has some resemblence to cricket on FTA UK TV can really do any harm. Whether it does any good remains to be seen.
