  • Consolidated Content from all of the BBC.

    Unfortunately this stream covers all the cricket content from across the BBC, which doesn’t allow you to only subscribe to your favourite shows or format of the game. If it were only the shows I wanted, covering the men’s tests, then I would unreservedly give 5 stars. The fact that I have to skip/delete coverage of the IPL for example brings the rating down.

  • TMS is there reason I pay my license fee

    Wonderful podcasts, often (but not exclusively) taken from test matches. TMS is an amazing institution and the BBC should do everything it can to preserve this institution.
