    HELP NEEDED - does anyone know....

    ...where I can get a video or DVD (this will probably only be relevant to UK cricket fans) of the match between Surrey and Glamorgan in last year's C&G when Ali Brown smacked 268, or even just of Brown's innings? I missed the match at the time, and now feel strangely compelled to watch it having loved every second of Fred Flintoff's 142 at Lord's. Makes a change to see an English batsman scoring runs that quickly! Thanks to anyone who can help.

    Check in the CricketWeb store, if you buy anything from there CricketWeb get some of the commission. If not then check the net. In the store there is a DVD of Nathan Astle's 222, which I missed due to Ch4 not even showing highlights :!( :!( :!( :!(

    Might get it sometime!

    What about the BBC and ITV and Channel 5?

    None of them showed the highlights either, so why just have a go at one station?

    They have a limited budget, so have to decide what is going to make money and attract audiences - Tests played on the other side of the World will never do that because the highlights cannot be shown near enough to the end of play for people to not have seen the key bits on the news or read or heard what has gone on, thus they wouldn't tune in.

    Interisting how you read one comment and then go off about something else! Marc, seriously, calm down, breath slowly, and stop getting the wrong end of the stick! If I was having a go at Ch4 then I would have made it slightly more obvious than just saying I didn't see his innings because of the lack of highlights and a few annoyed faces! Marc, please realise there are some posts that are not needed, and this was not. Hell I shouldn't even be needing to explain myself at the moment!

    You specifically moaned about Channel 4 not showing highlights of the NZ series, yet there are 4 terrestial TV channels in England, and none of the others showed it either, so why just complain about 1 station?

    I didn't moan, I showed my annoyance. There is a difference.

    Egad! The thread count is at 3! You two are serial thread-killers!

    Try Cricket Web, cricinfo.com or just go to google.

    Good luck!
