After a devastating Test series loss to India, the besieged Australian men's cricket team have hit back in a tense one-day international (ODI) series against India. Accustomed to emphatic victories, Aussie fans have rarely been subjected to such a nail-biting summer.

As a cricket fan, I’m enthralled. Yet as a non-Foxtel subscriber, I’m pissed off. Because the limited-overs games have been cordoned off by News Corp from those unwilling to shell out over $800 dollars a year for a sports package.
