ABSTRACT
CRICKET could be the next battleground between BT Sport and Sky, with the former expected to bid for an ICC portfolio which includes the World Cup, Champions Trophy and World T20. Intriguingly, Sky Sports chief Barney Francis and his ITV counterpart Niall Sloane, who have just carved up international football rights in Europe between them, had a breakfast meeting outside Lord's yesterday. The IPL, now on ITV4, is also on BT's wish list.
