Bad news for cricket fans

‘The BBC has lost the rights to cover England's upcoming cricket tours of Sri Lanka and the West Indies on radio to commercial broadcaster TalkSport.’

Has the BBC gone mad? TMS is what I pay my licence fee for! It’s been the sound of summer since my childhood and I’m just one of millions of fans all over the world. Who wants cricket commentary interrupted by advertisements?
