The Telegraph reporting this morning that Channel 4 have won the bid ("barring an late 11th hour gazumping")!!!

Apparently this is due to BT and Sky already committing a load of money to the bidding for this years Ashes so didn't want to go to high etc....

Whilst I'm delighted to see this on terrestrial television, this whole thing has been an absolute farce to the supporters in the UK

Excellent.

Hope the presenter/pundit line up is worthwhile. Leaving this to the 11th hour is never good.

I know what you mean but this is quite a big change to go on terrestrial so thats the main thing

Wowsers will be back an over excited mark Nicolas but no Graeme Swann please  :)

I dont suppose our younger members would want Gower but us oldies still hold him in great affection.

He was....fabulous to watch in his day

Bet Shane Warne is throwing his cap into the ring, now that the AUS/SA series has been postponed.
