Nevermind the Open Championship being scheduled slap bang in the middle of the Lord's Test against India, September and October is set to become a TV sporting extravaganza. And to stave off boredom, the Cricket World Cup might learn a thing or two by having two other major sports having important fixtures entwined in its scheduling.
