Bowled over by live cricket

The TV Guide - - MR TELLY -

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Prime for screen­ing live cover­age of the first one-day match be­tween the Black Caps and Sri Lanka at Mt Maun­ganui. I love watch­ing sport but can’t af­ford to pay for my TV view­ing so just have to grab whatever I can get on free to air. The match was thor­oughly en­ter­tain­ing and I loved it, par­tic­u­larly with Martin Gup­till’s fan­tas­tic cen­tury and Jimmy Nee­sham hit­ting 34 runs off one over. It was bril­liant view­ing. My only gripe is why doesn’t Prime show more live sport? Hav­ing a few ads in the cover­age is OK if it means I can see a cricket match or a rugby test screened live. And then those peo­ple who can af­ford Sky can watch the same match with­out ads. Makes sense to me.
