C4 have ditched plans to move the cricket to More4 on Sunday morning and will stick with it on the main channel instead, with Sunday Brunch airing after at 11.45am.

For the following Day/Night test C4 will air coverage from 8.30am-5pm, with Countdown on More4 at 2.25pm.

I can confirm that the cricket world feed has an audio track which contains the director talkback from India.
There is no meta data incoming.

I am guessing the feed is fibre I can’t find it as a sat feed Sad

Line feeds, a satellite feed from India has got a fairly major problem working into London directly of course......!

The highlights show is basically as before, but twice as long, with just a short piece to camera as the intro. Noteably though it's available on All4 in HD - perhaps a concession to More4 being SD. Unless I'm mistaken All4 isn't in HD as standard.

In my experience watching Travel Man it depends how recently the programme was uploaded to All4. If it was made in HD but it was uploaded a few years ago, it seems to be in SD. If it is more recent then it seems to be in HD.

Sorry to take this away from Test Cricket on Channel 4 but Sunday Brunch this week is following the Cricket airing from 11.45am-2.45pm rebranded as Sunday Lunch for the day.

It isn't the first time this show aired in the afternoon, back in the Something for the Weekend days on BBC Two one edition was delayed by the Australian Open Men Singles Final and aired at 1.30pm, if I remember rightly after this they just dropped the programme when sports coverage aired. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00hhrk1

Is Channel 4 Cricket using their old Mambo No 5 theme tune?? I notice the trailers are.

They are for their opening and closing titles.

Well not much value from the daytime day/night test for C4 considering it'll be over after barely a day and a half.

The graphics now have purple elements (which are rather jarring), seemingly linked to the sponsor with a link to their website to buy retro Indian jerseys popping up on the scorebar every do often.

Red hot porn. Wink

But seriously though, just what they would normally schedule had the cricket not got in the way, maybe with an exception or two.
