Yeah, the only games I was able to watch last year were the few that started around 8:30pm eastern
Fox Cricket will show this season’s Sheffield Shield final from March 28-31. Melbourne’s Junction Oval will host the final after Victoria beat NSW in Sydney by 63 runs today, and are assured of top spot and the rights to host the decider.
