It had been 10 weeks since I last saw TEN Cricket.

It really was good to get TEN Cricket on my TV last night.

I only got to watch 50 minutes — a 60 minute (I think) highlight package of the June 30, 2013 WI v. Ind match from the Tri-Nations Series. It was a good match.

I immediately noticed that TEN has made some interesting changes to their broadcast — none of it good!

Display of run-rate and strike-rate statistics have been pared down to the bone.

When a batsman is out and is walking back and they show his innings you no longer get his strike-rate for that innings! You get score, number of balls, minutes and how dismissed. No strike-rate. That is crazy.

You also don’t get frequent updates of run-rate — current or required. Just occasionally.

This might have been just for that match — and it was a 60-minute highlight package. But basically there was a dearth of key statistics — the stuff we had come to expect: run-rates, strike-rates.

I will monitor this. Not sure what we can do. So this is just a heads up.
