Thanks to Arlo, splendid fellow of Test Match Special fame, it appears King Viv’s monstrous 189 will be on t’telly on Sunday:
If you have satellite or cable, tell the other half that youâ€™re busy on Sunday. From 11am until 7pm, ESPN Classics are showing highlights of the entire Test series plus the Texaco Trophy (Viv Richards 189 not out, remember?).
Greenidgeâ€™s double hundreds, Malcolm Marshall breaking his hand and still hitting Paul Allott for four, Allott taking 6 wickets in an innings, Joel Garner steaming in, Andy Lloyd breaking his arm. I was only 11 at the time, but watching it, it seemed like, well to be honest, 22 years ago.
I don’t have Sky…I have the poor man’s version, known as Freeview – whose reception is about as good as Darrell Hair walking into the Pakistan dressing room with a beaming smile. But if you do, you can watch it.
