I agree it's rather annoying, I presume they've done it to fit in with the BBL but they could have got an extra two games in during this time or made a bit of extra time for a 3rd test in NZ.

I don't think it's anything to do with the BBL (at least I bloody hope it's not). I think it's more a case of looking a maximise attendances (and revenue) by holding all the matches at the weekend. I can understand that but it's not great for the armchair fan.

Always used to be Sunday-Tuesday-Friday (although that was when it was a Tri-Nations affair). But instead today we got the two worst BBL sides throwing up a complete one sided non-event.

Well there aren't any BBL games on the days when we're playing ODI's whereas normally there's a game or two every day. I'm not sure which is the chicken and which is the egg though.

There's only so many moronic commentators to go round

Maybe because of the distances to travel? (just making a guess) Did wonder why they played the last Test at SCG and the first ODI at MCG with the only fixture inbetween (the warm up) also at SCG.....

Disagree - There's seemingly an infinite number and we've not even scratched the Kiwi surface yet for the likes of Morrison, Richardson and Doull!!
