Don't know if BT had it last year, but the South African T20 cricket competition, the Mzansi Super League T20, is on BT Sport this year. I'm not sure if the BT deal is just for this competition, or if Test matches, ODIs, and IT20s in South Africa are covered under this deal.

New this year, and I believe it's just this league and not any other SA competition.

West Indies Super 50 also started this week, which was on BT last year too.

From the few minutes of coverage (via ESPN West Indies) I saw of the Super 50 game a couple of nights ago on BT Sport 3 (IIRC) - The 50 in the title must refer to both the number of overs per side - and the actual attendance.

Still, a nice bottom third score graphic by ESPN.

Manish Bhasin interviewing Kevin de Bruyne for Football Focus. Is this the first time he has featured on it since Dan replaced him as host?

Euro 2020 coverage will need a ref on each match to handle VAR which will be the main issue of the British coverage ( as the Premier league may have voted to scrap it by then.).

The BBC didn't use a REF in their coverage of the World cup but one is needed for euro 2020.

ITV had a ref as part of their coverage of some but not all matches. The BBC didnt but really do need one for Euro 2020.

But if the BBC criticise UEFA's use of VAR then UEFA might ban the BBC from ever showing football ever again and the BBC will have to close down.
