Countdown and Cricket

Post by Rhys Benjamin » Wed Feb 03, 2021 11:42 am

Channel 4 have picked up the India vs England series which means that Countdown may get jumbled around the schedules. Unlike in the past, however, this is so last-minute that most of the affected dates are already in the can.

Episodes that will be affected:
- 24-26 Feb (3rd Test)

(edited as ODIs and T20Is not on C4)

Ah, just like old times. I might be able to recognise more than three or four of the players again soon!

Post that on a fucking cricket forum - c4c(ricket) or something. From a c4c(ountdown) perspective this is just annoying.

I thought this thread was going to be about like a chess boxing thing so that's a bit of let down.

In the Facebook group some of the Countdown fans are LIVID as the episodes on 24th-26th may be on MORE4!

(See, I could work for the Express online too!)

Channel 4 does NOT have the rights for the ODIs and T20Is. So only 24-26 Feb will be on More4 due to cricket.
