I've not followed that much of the Sky coverage this summer, so can't comment on their commentators/presenters, but the women on TMS have been excellent. Is it possible that you are ever so slightly sexist?

... I'm not sexist at all. I couldn't care less who does the job as long as they are the right person for it. Changing people with the sole goal of filling quotas is wrong though.

But thanks for the accusation anyway

Ian 'Beefy' Botham is a twat, and repeatedly called Jofra Archer 'Jofrey'. He isn't exactly the pinnacle of journalism. Absolutely no problem with him being given the elbow.

Maybe he's just a big fan of GoT? I expect he would've mentioned that this is the last test because winter is coming?

Maybe if you had any actual evidence that any women Sky were going to employ were going to 'ridiculed' (and that that would be because they were poor, not just as a result of sexism) then I wouldn't have asked the question.

Incidentally, I doubt any news sites or articles inferred it. You (and others) may have inferred it from what they said; but they (if they did) will have implied it.

I wrote about breaking up the old boys network... not necessarily about introducing women?

I too think the job should go to those who deserve it and would actually prefer to see more journalists and fewer ex players given a chance.

...and I would have thought the Aussies would have loved to have won the Ashes outright, rather than ‘just’ retain them? They’re a competitive bunch for sure.

Alison Mitchell is excellent on Test Match Special. Isa Guha is relatively new so a bit too early to tell but seems pretty good so far. These women genuinely know cricket. Some of the female Sky (football) match reporters are also clearly knowledgeable and hence fine. What lets it all down are the ones in the studio who are brought in for their looks who clearly know very little about football.
