Yeah the whole thing is a farce. TV rights to Amazon prime (well done ICC, you clowns, way to go to promote the game), hosted by a country that barely understands what cricket is, and with a bunch of nations that probably are lucky to even have 12 cricket bats within their jurisdiction.

I think it's more on the government not having all Australian Cricket matches on the anti siphoning list

So be it if nobody wants to bid for them, but at least make it so they have to be offered to free to air stations

I have Amazon Prime, am a cricket tragic and even I’m not watching the games.

Just like the A League and Super rugby. Not showing your sport on free to air is a great way to disenfranchise your existing fans and also close yourself off from garnering new fans.

The shocking TV quality of streaming services for live sport compared to HD and 4K from Foxtel satellite is also a turn off.

45 wickets is a lot. Oh hang on - that's 8 wickets. That's still a lot.
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

You gotta ask yourself, who did Namibia beat to qualify for a T20 WC ?

Whoever it was must be ****..

Super Rugby not being on free to air was the beginning of the end for the code. It is slowly dying now.

There's no comparison. Super rugby doesn't have a competition with an $8.3million prize pool in India. Cricket is not dying anytime soon, it's getting more popular.

It was slowly dying 15 years ago. There’s been no pulse for several years.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

Yeah true. Was a thing around the 2003 World Cup. Find crazy that some fringe first graders / average players represented the Wallabies.

T20 scoring doesn’t make sense. Should say we beat them by 2 balls. It was a very close game, and we dropped catches left right and centre.

Watching Aussies vs Bangers at the moment. Can't say we lack experience. The only guy in the team under 30 is Tim David at 28.

Always a good day when England get beaten at cricket. South Africa have edged them by 7 runs.
