    The final won't be on TV unfortunately. Only a live stream.

    Not fox.

    Its our old friend channel nine.


    Fox don't hold any rights to domestic cricket anymore.


    Although cricket Australia should share the blame as well. They should have insisted it was broadcast.

    The Shield Final deserves its own thread I reckon.

    TPB, get to it, you're getting slack.

    Wait, 9 have the rights and won't play it?

    Agreed. Highly misused in the international with the desperation to have somebody come in at the final few overs and blast away at a SR of 150, ridiculous.

    Thought I was going to be able to go to the current game and the final before going to uni just down the road but the SCG being out of action has wrecked that plan.

    Fantastic effort by Ron Niney to keep Queensland out of the final. Good boy.

    For a side that had quite a few former international players available for the entire season, that really is terrible from the Vics.

    Also, a bit baffled how Manuka got the gig - surely NSO or Bankstown?

    Read on twitter from NSW cricket that the reasoning was that they hadn't played at any of the other possible venues since October/November

    They also said that in order to host the final they would have had to win against WA this week. That meant playing again at a venue they'd just won at made sense.

    Although that is somewhat mitigated now by the fact that we're playing WA again.


    According to the nsw cricket CEO it's was Trevor bayliss that made the call.
