Technical difficulties (?) as Fox Cricket took the world feed to the tea break and is now playing a vodcast of Warnie and Howie talking about old games.

They’ve done the same thing every day of the series so far. Scheduled in the guide too…

Whole series actually.

History repeats itself.

Sorry again!

Surely they are used to it now.

From 6pm (AEST) Gerard Whateley, Robert Craddock and the Fox Cricket commentary team celebrate the life of Warnie Live from the MCG. This will be followed by the State memorial where Australia farewells The King from the MCG, the stage for many of his magical moments

Australia are slated to play six 50-over games for the season - three against England after the conclusion of the T20 World Cup, and another three against the Proteas following the Sydney Test - with the aim of securing automatic qualification for the 2023 World Cup in India.

But the latter ODI series will be played exclusively as day games, to be concluded in time for BBL matches starting around 7pm. CA is obligated to release its summer schedule by the end of May.

BBL games will be played almost completely in prime time evening slots across the summer, beginning immediately after the season’s only day/night Test, against the West Indies in Adelaide.

Fox/seven continue to destroy the fabric of summer scheduling of cricket. It’s been an abject disaster.

Think this one is more the fault of CA trying to flog a dead horse back to life rather than a request from Fox and Seven, I’d imagine Fox would actually prefer the ODIs in primetime given the decline in the BBL’s ratings over the past few years.

This has been coming for a while - since T20 took off, the ODIs have long been third-string of the summer. If they could remove them from the summer schedule, CA probably would do it

ODIs don’t always have to be played as day/night matches. 40 years ago there were no light towers at any of Australian grounds, and one-dayers were solely daylight affair.
I would love ODIs to be kept part of the summer line-up and as part of the new broadcast deal.

There’s probably an argument to make ODIs a World Cup only event at this point in time, or as a one-off game in a tour.

The WC is still a money spinner but having bilateral series is increasingly hard to fit in the calendar.

My preferred option would actually be to make T20 franchise-only outside WCs but that will never happen.
