Dispute curtails Indian cricket coverage
Anyone attempting to watch the first India vs England one day international from Hyderabad this morning had an interesting 15 minutes, as a dispute between broadcasters and the Indian cricket board meant that the international feed was shut off.
Details of exactly what went on are fuzzy, as was Sky’s commentary as their team over there had to do it the old fashioned way and produce a ‘radio’ style commentary down a phone line. Pics were restored at the start of the fourth over, but the commentary team is still shut out.
