    Channel Nine retain Australian cricket broadcasting rights

    Another couple of summers of Mark Micholas, Tubbs, Heals & Slats, with the odd cameo from Richie, Bill and Chappelli..

    I reckon they'll add some new blood this summer, or at least they should....
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    I hope so. The old blood is so old I'm surprised it's still liquid.

    No more ex players, though. Get a professional broadcaster in, someone with some actual broadcasting talent.

    Tim Lane or Drew Morphett imo. Also wouldn't mind Gideon Haigh. Someone with a brain, and Haigh sounds good when he talks. Could be a sort of Christopher Martin Jenkins thing.

    I don't mind any of Taylor, Healy and Slater, but it turns in to a bit of a wankfest when they're all on.

    Ideal team would be Tim Lane, Gideon Haigh plus one of Taylor, Slater and Healy.

    Seriously pyrrhic victory, though - Ten bid them up to twice what they were paying before and who also got the Big Bash anyway.

    Nice position for CA in an Ashes year, though. $500 million cash in hand plus full grounds against the Poms. Now if they just ditched Maxwell's central contact they could solve world hunger.

    Cricket Australia would be mighty pleased considering the negative press the game has received in the last 2 years. They got a damn good deal out of this with Ch 9 and of course Big Bash with Ch 10.

    dont see any big changes to the team for the ashes. there was talk they might go back to 2 commentators during a stint, instead of 3, though
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    "CA is also still in talks on radio and domestic cricket rights for competitions such as the RYOBI One-Day Cup."

    This was the easy part for Cricket Australia. They're under huge pressure now to improve their product in the national team and improve it rapidly. Nine payed well over the odds to retain the rights. They're going to have to do everything they can to get a return on the money they've payed. If the national team continues to serve up the rubbish it has over the last 4 years then Nine will be applying the blow torch on Cricket Australia.

    One bit of positive press for the first time in years doesn't change these facts. The national team is rubbish, the system is broken and the cricketing public don't like the players (them about to get a pay rise won't help this). The ball is well and truly in your court now Sutherland. Time to deliver the full product. No pressure.

    As of press time, James Sutherland was still perusing the shops on his way home from the beach.
