Scots seal 65m deal with ESPN and Sky Hows that for openers: Essex batsman Alastair Cook enjoys his 50 this morning with captain Andrew Strauss at Lords, where England reached lunch without losing a wicket, thanks to misfiring Australian paceman Mitchell Johnson, above. AGGERS SHOWS HE KNOWS HIS ONIONS AS CRICKERERS RETWEET Do you tweet? Follow us at: LondonLiteNews THE crickerers -- crickets twitterers -- were at it as England started the second Test with a bang at Lords. BBC cricket correspondent Jon Agnew (Aggerscricket) was first to inform us: Freddie fit to play. One place for Harmy, Monty and Onions. I go for Onions. And by lunch, with Englands openers unbeaten, he downloaded a scoreboard showing a chap called Agnew taking all ten Aussie wickets and raved: Excellent morning for England. Aussies look rather ragged. DuckworthLewis singing at lunch. Former England coach turned Sky commentator David Lloyd (BumbleCricket): England should set stall out for two days batting. Pitch is a belter. He was also excited about the arrival of a blonde Aussie, adding: Warney asking if there is a whist drive he can attend in St Johns Wood, a reference to Warnes absence from the drawn first Test in Cardiff -- he was playing poker in Las Vegas. THE Scottish Premier Leagues 12 clubs have agreed a 65m deal with Sky and ESPN to screen 60 live games each season across the UK and Ireland. The deal will last until the end of 2011-12 with the SPL having an option to extend the contract for a further two seasons. Lex Gold, chairman of the SPL, said: We are pleased that in just over three weeks we have been able to strike this deal. The league had been looking for an alternative following the collapse of Setantas UK operation -- last year Setanta agreed to pay them 125m over four seasons. index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html
