I agree re Channel Four, but it's probably far worse on Sky now.

FAO: Mods - is there any chance you could post the trailer on my original post as an embedded video? I tried but it didn't work.
Yeah, it was great watching Marshall, Ambrose & Willis tearing up the field. I enjoyed watching the spin bowlers too. My favourite English batsman, the unconventional Derek Randall wasn't a feature of the West Indies matches much though, more of an Ashes hero.

I've watched a bit of the 20/20. It's not the same. Lol.
