There’s more justification for Fox Cricket being a year round channel compared to Fox Footy & Fox League since the latter two hardly produces content to air during the offeseason
Yeah that’s true cricket is a all year round sport if you want to watch other countries play. Surprised the channel will only run to March.
Like jthommo said, Mumbrella has probably made an error. It would make no sense for things like the IPL to now mostly air on a generic Fox Sports channel
probably when all the shows finish
Confirmation that the new 2-part doco series 2 Nations, 1 Obsession will air on Fox Cricket next month.
The first instalment of 2 Nations, 1 Obsession will screen on Fox Cricket at 5.20pm on Wednesday, November 21 as a lead-in to Australia’s T20 International against India at the Gabba.
The second episode will air the following evening at 8.30pm, with the full documentary also available worldwide via Cricket Australia’s international broadcast partners.
UAE will play their first Twenty20 match against Australia, by hosting them in Abu Dhabi on October 22, two days before the opening game of the T20 series between the Aussies and Pakistan. Not sure if it will be added to Fox Cricket’s coverage on late notice.
Former cricketer Brad Hogg revealed on Channel Seven Telethon this morning he would soon fly to Sri Lanka to commentate the home team’s test series against England for the host broadcaster. The first test starts at Galle on November 6.
I walked past Telstra shop and noticed that Fox Cricket showed full replays of the Gillette ODI Series that was previously telecasted by Channel 9.
Yes they showed highlights from two one day internationals from last summer. A new Fox Cricket classics title card replaced the WWOS opener.
Fox Cricket won’t be showing Australia’s Twenty20 match against United Arab Emirates, to be held at Abu Dhabi at 9pm AEDT. I know the match was only added to the itinerary last week but with some commentators still in UAE for the T20 series against Pakistan, surely Fox Sports can organise some TV coverage.
Instead it is replaying the first ODI between India and West Indies.
Do you want the commentators to film it?
No, what I mean is to have Fox Sports commentators calling the match against a local feed even though we have to tolerate the Arabic graphics.
As long as they film it in landscape on their mobile, it can’t be worse then the Socceroos game from Kuwait last week
