Pissed off to find that it is on BT Sport.

 

I signed up to Virgin 4 years ago because they had the Ashes on BT. I’m pleased that it’s now back on BT/Virgin. Sky have dominated cricket over the last few years. 
Winners and losers.

In fairness, sky have pumped in plenty of money, and their coverage and technology is excellent.

Presumably BT is also very good.

To be honest, I can’t compare the difference as I don’t have Sky and it was 4 years since I last saw Test Cricket live on TV. I don’t remember any issues with the broadcasting though. From memory, they did a pretty good job last time.

Think BT Sport are broadcasting Australian commentary, Fox Sports but the problem there is they've got Michael Vaughan on the team. 

As he's rapidly morphing into the anti-Christ they're on about switching to Channel 7 commentary instead.

If it’s anything like this, it should be good.😊

You managed to get a travel waiver or visa?

Yes. Myself and my wife have the exemption as M is a permanent resident. Unfortunately’ my older son isn’t able to go as he doesn’t fit the criteria. In the last couple of days, they’ve changed the rules and we have now to self quarantine for 3 days when we get there. Hopefully, it won’t get any worse than that. Hope for the best but ready for the worst.

Yes, we got exemptions, because our daughter has resident status too.
Junior, however, wasn't granted one, so I'm staying home with her, wife leaves on 29/12 for 3 weeks.

We go the same day. 5 1/2 weeks. I was hoping that the further relaxation of restrictions from 1st Dec. (Now delayed) would allow other family members later in the month. Doesn’t look likely now. As it’s the cricket thread, I’ll take him to the Windies instead. 🤞
