Comment Southern Cross Austereo SCA has announced that it will not be seeking to acquire radio media rights for cricket. The rights, currently held by SCA, have allowed its Triple M network to broadcast test matches for the past two years. A spokesperson told AdNews that listener engagement had nothing to do with the decision and that the broadcaster had simply assessed the deal and not decided to continue with it. Macquarie Media is also yet to confirm its position. The broadcaster had a five-year deal with Cricket Australia for all men's home international matches as well as the Big Bash League.
Completely dominated by India you feel. The new look opening pair of Agarwal and Vihari started well for India, Debutant Agarwal getting a fine 76 on debut.
That's the half-century from Chetehswar Pujara, he has taken his time but more importantly looked solid out in the middle. Pujara completes the half-century off balls and it is important he makes it a big one here IST That will be stumps.
Pujara completes the half-century off balls and it is important he makes it a big one here IST Runs have been at a premium, but India with only two batsmen dismissed hold the edge. Of course a quick wickets tomorrow could change the equation dramatically.
Under this brand falls four networks — the longest-running and 'main' network is the Metropolitan network — which focuses on a mix of rock, sport and comedy. There are four of these stations all in capital cities.
Much depends on how Pujara-Kohli negotiate first hour. The big fast bowler just seems frustrated, been that kind of a day. So much effort without much results.
Important for India to keep their calm here. Starc's induces the outside edge there, with his angle, and Kohli gets an outside edge which goes flying towards Paine. But it dips and he gets a glove on it, only to drop it.
We still have 5 overs remaining here IST The new ball has been taken here from Australia and they will be looking to get a couple of wickets before play ends. India seem to be in complete control at the moment but a couple of quick wickets here can quickly turn the game around.
Will be interesting to see if Australia immediately take the new ball or wait to give Lyon another look in! India really taking control of this game here IST For the seamers today, the cardinal sin has been to bowl too full.
Deliveries that have pitched on a good length, or short, have gone at 1. Full pitched deliveries have gone at 5.
Not much in the pitch for the bowlers here and India will be hoping that these two players can keep things solid. He seems to be in some pain as the physio is called out here.
Players take time to refuel themselves as well IST This is how bad the review was from Australia! Interestingly, all have come outside India.
