i've been quite annoyed that Sky haven't shown this series, they did at one point have rights to South African home series' but it seems to have lapsed.

Yes, I agree, Sky were being cheap.

The dicussions I had with sky were that if they got more people requesting to see the series, they would have shown it.

Actually was a cracker of a series from reading the reports and highlights.

1 decision(the not out of that fella...name eludes me atm) changed the series.

If they had "heat cameras" then he would definately been out.

Darryl Hair and his not turning up the mic......technology fail!!!!

ok, i'll remember that in future.  Every time there isn't a sport event I want to see that isn't on Sky, i'll e-mail or tweet them.

Sky is a bunch of tards.

The only time they show cricket is when Australia and Or New Zealand play..

Bloody disgraceful for the cost.

Heh, I'm a bit late to the party but had to jump in:

That 1 decision didn't change the series. Let's be fair here - the Poms lost by an innings and 70-odd runs. Still, it wouldn't be a losing England team without a good whinge!

"heat cameras" - these are Hotspot cameras.

Finally, it was Daryl Harper - not Hair this time (although can fully understand the confusion as Hair seems to usually be the one in the middle of all cricketing controversy!!).

Was a shame not to have the series shown on Sky, although the cricket broadcasts out of SA are below average at best (much like those out of the sub continent - why is that with all the cricketing money over there?!). Even more of a shame considering how much of a let-down the Aus-Pak series was that WAS broadcast here.

Still, bring on... er.... Bangladesh
