Season 8, Ep 28: Channel Seven's big cash heist
Season 8, Ep 28: Two years ago the Seven Network bought TV rights to great fanfare. Now they're refusing to pay. The free-to-air broadcaster has Cricket Australia in a tough spot, by withholding the cash required to run the game unless CA agrees to rewrite the contract. And it all sounded so rosy when both parties were talking up the hundreds of millions to be spent not long ago. We have ESPNcricinfo's Daniel Brettig on to talk the details of what could turn into a legal war – or an old-fashioned stick-up job. Plus the one-day series between England and Australia, a bit of Nerd Pledge, and some dark days too for the ECB.
