Letter: BBC's unsporting cricket coverage

Sir: If we are to have a successful cricket team again, can Michael Atherton plese have a word with the anti-cricket brigade at the BBC. Not wanting to miss the spectacle of our brave boys finally putting the Aussies to the sword, I battled through hours of late-night mediocrity until the historic pictures finally arrived on my screen at 12.10am.

Once every seven years I can manage this, but if we are on the point of a cricketing revival the BBC must play its part in promoting our noble game and delivering the nation to work on time the next day.

Alternatively, bring back Ted Dexter and we can all have a good night's sleep again.

Yours faithfully,
