This review looks at cricket on sky in particular. There has been a lot of controversy regarding the cricket being moved to sky over the last year, but I believe that cricket on sky is much better than if it were on terrestrial television.
Firstly sky offer excellent experienced commentators like Ian Botham and David Gower along with Mike Atherton and Nasser Hussain. Sky offer in depth conversation and also teaches new people about the game.
The highlights package is much more thorough with a separate panel of experienced pundits. Sky offers an excellent 3rd man experienced. 3rd man is one of the chosen commentators analysing the days play and informing people about some of the more subtle points that may not be recognisable to the naked eye. For example can you distinguish Shane Warne’s flipper from his leg break to his googly? Well 3rd man will be quick to pick up on such detail! Juts excellent!
Summary: Great Channel for cricket!
