Costcutting at Fox Sports? Month old boxing match replaces live Test cricket coverage

Cricket followers who are looking to check out the form of Australia's next Test opponents Sri Lanka will need to be glued to the box tonight, because it's the only day (of five scheduled) when Fox Sports, which has traditionally relayed the full live UKSky TV coverage of England's home Test matches, will be showing live coverage of the first Sri Lanka - England Test.

And the cricket isn't being replaced by live coverage of other sport: on Friday night Fox Sports 1 has scheduled (see http://www.foxsports.com.au/tvguide), a boxing match fought last month followed by a two hour kickboxing documentary and repeats of AFL games. Not one minute of live coverage there.
