I hope they use their original Channel 4 Cricket theme Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit of...) by Lou Bega, for the coverage on Sunday. Will bring back memories of the final few years of cricket on terrestrial TV before it went to Sky and what a terrific job Channel 4 used to do for their cricket programming.

No I meant Channel 4. Mind you, maybe it's not on brand, right? I mean, how do I know as I'm out of touch with modern branding trends?

Jon's point is itโ€™s a Sky Sports programme simulcast on Channel 4, not Channel 4 Cricket.

It's a rebroadcast of the coverage on Sky. That's all. There'll, apart from the switch for F1 be no C4 interaction whatsoever.

OK, I didn't realise it was just a simulcast.

Good to see C4 giving Mo Gilligan his own self-titled show after hosting The Big Narstie Show for the two series it ran. The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan replaces The Last Leg from next week.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

As much as I'd love to see Mambo No 5 slipped in somewhere, the theme music is set by the ICC in any case (which Sky and C4 have both been using all tournament).

What is lovely though is that Sunset and Vine, the original C4 cricket production company, are producing the main match coverage so, in a very real sense, C4 cricket is back!
