There was a time when the best way to enjoy live Cricket on TV was to turn on Channel 4, take a look at Mark Nicholas’ quiff and press mute. Why? Because then you could turn on the wireless, tune into to Radio 4 LW and listen to Aggers and co talking about pigeons and Mrs. Smith’s Victoria Sponge. At the same time, you could watch Mark Ramprakash fox-trotting up the wicket and Darren Gough and Andy Caddick spraying it about the place from the Pavilion end.
Nowadays though, Sky Sports is king when it comes to cricket live on TV. It’s Michael Holding at ‘Third Man’ rather than Simon Hughes in the analyst's van. So if you don’t have access to the undulating momentum shifts of Test Cricket on Sky, the best place to catch it is down at cricket pubs all over the country. That way, you can ask the kitchen to slap on a roast, grab a cappuccino in the morning and move on to a pint or two in the afternoon. In fact, even if you’ve got Sky at home, you might find you enjoy the gentle pace of the great English game down at your local where you can tell all the other punters about that century you scored for your school's under nine's side...yeah, right.
