  1. Its raining on Sunday

    The guys selling tickets are most of the time just using the event to make some handy extra cash so will probably also offer to buy your ticket off you. Not a clue what price they'll offer you though.
  2. Its raining on Sunday

    Where are you seeing 90%? Met office now has it down to 30% from 1pm.
  3. Its raining on Sunday

    If you walk around the outside of the ground before the game you'll find people selling tickets for fairly high prices, but you won't be able to get in without one.
  4. Its raining on Sunday

    Full refund if less than 15 overs are bowled, there's a half refund limit as well but I'm not sure what it is. I expect a fair few people would've bought tickets through unofficial 3rd parties though which would make actually getting the refund yourself a struggle.
  5. Its raining on Sunday

    The met office currently only have a 40% chance of rain between 1 and 4, 30% between 4 and 7 and 10% the rest of the day.
  6. 79* at tea, slight chance than Surrey could declare during the interval.
  7. 62* but Surrey are 7 down.
  8. Currently 25* in the 6th innings. Unfortunately he'd probably have to bat pretty quickly to get a 100 before Surrey would want to declare to give themselves an outside chance of winning the game.
  9. GREAT NEWS- Nottinghamshire SIGNS UP PUJARA

    Only from international cricket, he's retiring from county cricket at the end of the season.
  10. Not if you keep the same bend (roughly) throughout your bowling action.
  11. Players are that kind of level wouldn't be qualified enough to play as overseas players in places such as South Africa or England. Does the BPL run at the same time as the Indian domestic season?
  12. Pick your CT2017 winner

    As an England supporter I'll have to put them top, feeling as confident as I have for a major tournament in years. After that I'd I was doing up a list it would go : England Australia India - South Africa New Zealand Pakistan Bangladesh - Sri Lanka
  13. There's no crowd segregation in cricket in England.
  14. GREAT NEWS- Nottinghamshire SIGNS UP PUJARA

    Wasn't the greatest of ways to get out today, edged to 3rd slip trying to block one outside off stump. Can get highlights on the ECB website if anyone's interested.
  15. "No, it's not the ICCs revenue, it's the ICCs revenue". Alright then.
  16. Sachin, Dravid want India to play Champions Trophy

    Pretty sure you've quoted the IPL revenue there and not the profit. Also do you have sources for the other values?
  17. England Cricket team new Kit

    And it's not as if they do that very often... .
  18. England Cricket team new Kit

    ODI is the navy blue one Heather Knight is wearing. T20 is the red with blue hoops that Morgan is wearing.
  19. England Cricket team new Kit

    Bit of an exaggeration, the test one hasn't changed since the start of 2014, the ODI one since the 2015 world cup and the t20 one since the 2014 wt20. Quite like the ODI one and it's good to see the traditional sweater back with the test kit. Not entirely sure over that t20 shirt though.
  20. Can India withdraw from the Champions trophy?

    The 2nd point was a reply in relation to India getting knocked out of a world cup early where the major blow would've been to the broadcaster, and not about leaving the ICC. There's still room to be dubious over the 70% figure, after all it was a value put out by the BCCI, ECB and CA when the size of that value would only help justify the notable increase in revenue the 3 got. Would be far more credible if it was directly from the ICC or even better an independent auditor given there's quite clearly a large conflict of interest in where the value came from.
  21. Can India withdraw from the Champions trophy?

    Pretty silly to use the revenue from a year to judge how financially beneficial a single tour is in that period, for starters Australia hosted in the world cup in the 2014/15 year which won't do much harm to the annual revenue! Despite that though that wasn't my point. What I said was the ECB and CA aren't financially reliant on Indian tours as other smaller boards perhaps may be (or tours from the big 3 members in general). Financially the ICC wouldn't have been majorly affected by Indias exit, like I said it would have been the (Indian) broadcaster who took the major brunt of it. Yes, the broadcasters after that realisation would have of course been very keen to keep India in at all costs in the future and it's in the ICCs interest to make the deal as likely to be as financially successful as possible to the broadcaster so they'll pay up. Not sure what that's got do with what I said though.
  22. Still nearly all over you with only only 1 non-English qualified in the XI, god damn Gary Ballance .
  23. Came across this article earlier which I think gives a pretty informative summary of the current state and expectations of Australian cricket broadcasting : https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/apr/28/nine-ten-foxtel-or-optus-australian-cricket-tv-rights-explained
  24. To be honest I'm intrigued by it, was on the fence about the proposal but and I'm interested to see how they go about organising it and the resulting end product. I'm not wishing failure on it personally, in-fact I wish it as much success as possible because if it does succeed (contrary to your expectations!) it can only be good financially for English cricket and in attracting a new young audience that is dwindling a bit. If it doesn't succeed then so be it. Got to admit I haven't see any Stokes v Root marketing myself though!
  25. The BBL rarely has the Australian test players playing.
