Q: I wanted to watch England against Bangladesh/Australia/Pakistan this summer. I live in the USA but can't seem to find it on TV over here. Who as the ECB sold broadcast right to for English cricket in the USA for 2010?

Q: For the price of my compulsory licence fee I can watch live cricket from India with my grandson but I cannot watch live England Test cricket from Bangladesh. When my grandson asks why we can't watch his cricketing heoes live on TV playing our national game I don't know what to tell him.
A: The Bangladesh v England series rights belong to the BCB, who sell them to whoever they see fit, as do the IPL with their deal with ITV4, which you in any case need a digi box/digital TV to watch

Q: Good Morning,
I wondered if you could help answering a question posed to me from a folorned Australian supporter after the recent successful Ashes campaign. Apparently unnoticed by myself, in one particular Ashes test Andrew Strauss was wearing the number 25 on his helmet as opposed to his usual 600+ player for England number. Could you possibly tell me what the symbolism for this number was. While I won numerous cases from my aussies "mates" I can win a further one if i find this out... nothing like compounding more Aussie misery!!

A: After some investigation, apparently the players get numbers on their Test caps in increments of 25 against how many matches they've played...so that must have been an older one he was wearing. Hope that helps you!
A: The selectors pick the players they consider best for any squad. We can't comment further on individual selection issues
Q: Can somebody provide some iformation with regards to refunds for the wash-out Saturday of the Egdbaston test this Summer. I returned my tickets to the handling company in Leicester by special delivery on August 14th. The Post Office state that they were delivered on August 16th. The conditions on the back of the tickets state refund payments within 28 days. I spoke to the Edgebaston ticket office two weeks ago and they provided a phone number to call at the ECB, as the person at Edgbaston said that it was an ECB issue. This number just gets you to a recorded message saying that refunds for various matches are being processed, but with no detailed information, or expectation of payment date. I am growing increaingly frustrated that I have received neither aknowledement of receipt, or that there is any general information about payment expectations. Can I have some comments please as to why the ECB is not meeting its own contract terms on this matter.
A: This isn't really the correct channel for queries with regards to specific ticket refund issues; but we have passed your comments/details on to the correct department internally for someone to look at and get back to you.
A: Who knows, he certainly has the pedigree; but not something we can predict!
