Has anybody got any idea about why the England tour to the Windies has not been announced on TV schedules?

For as long as I can remember, West Indies’ home matches have always been shown on Sky. However, I cannot see anything which assures me that the series v England will be on Sky, so I fear that maybe the previous broadcasting contract has expired and that another one hasn’t been signed yet for some reason, perhaps due to there being a stumbling block between Sky and the West Indies Cricket Board. Until a few months ago, Sky used to show all of India’s home matches, but that contract ended unceremoniously, so I can’t rule the possibility of the contract to show West Indies’ home matches having ended similarly.

It would be a massive surprise if the series isn’t available on UK TV. Indeed, it would be something of a surprise if the series ends up on a channel other than Sky, although that would not be impossible considering BT seems to have a relationship with the WICB considering they show domestic cricket from the Caribbean alongside international and domestic cricket from Australia, while FreeSports have broken into cricket broadcasting, as they are showing the Mzansi Super League from South Africa and have shown a couple of other tournaments.

According to this website it is on SKY. []

Yet I haven't found any mention of it on the SKY's website.

Thanks Guys - your thoughts echo my own. It is one of the reasons I subscribe to both Sky and BT to watch test cricket and England tours in particular.

Sky made no mention of "see you in January" when they signed off from Sri Lanka and their web site shows no coverage at all!

Fingers crossed.

Last Test now a dead rubber. Holder off to Northants for the first two CC games says Cricket Paper.

And Why is Jos Buttler still in the slips dropping easy catches?
