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

Read this morning that "wowsers" is contracted to Talksport for the series

He's alright when he does technical analysis but I cannot stand it when he slips into the 'back in my day' patter that Vaughan is so bad for. Would happily listen to Ponting for hours though.

Great news! Both for the bank balance and the general public!

C4s coverage used to be great, Simon Hughes as the Analyst was brilliant and its something that has been copied to different levels by all networks since

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

I am not sure that there is any good faith as far as negotiating with the BCCI is concerned.  I seem to recall back in 2012 Sky having to run the commentary from a studio in London and with Athers doing outside segments from a car park in India overlooking the ground after Sky were sold the rights but then were told that they would have to pay a further .5m for access to the ground.

This doesn't seem to be a bidding war so much as no one being prepared to pay what has been asked leaving C4 to step in

Surely the commentary/footage will all be from whoever Star Sports had lined up.
C4 might have have a presenter and a pundit set up in a studio if they have had enough time to arrange it.

He may have been the first but Simon Hughes is awful, especially on the C5 highlights (thankfully the BBC didn't get him in for their highlights). Atherton, Hussain, Haysman do a much better job.

Good that there's no racing for them to pop off to?

It was pretty groundbreaking at the time and I found it very informative.

Ive never watched him on C5, didnt even know they had cricket coverage!

At least it should be better than skys rubbish coverage from their homes.

Strauss and cook set to be named. I suspect the remaining will be of the diverse nature

They did England highlights from 2006-2019, he was there for most of it I think.

I felt sky did a good job getting the various commentators/ analysts to be able to contribute both remotely and from the studio.
