SKY SPORTS had to apologise as live T20 World Cup cricket coverage was interrupted by a weird glitch.

Viewers fumed as it came with Scotland hunting victory against Namibia – on the day the USA stunned Pakistan for one of the greatest shocks in the sport’s history.

This screen blip referencing Channel 4 was particularly baffling

Cricket fans were particularly baffled as multi-coloured stripes referencing rival broadcaster CHANNEL 4 came on the screen.

Sky responded with a full-screen message that said: “We’re really sorry for this temporary fault.”

One viewer claimed on social media: “This happens regularly on sky sports and at frustrating moments. Can I just be sorry next time I am not able to pay?”

Another posted: “Not really sure why I pay for @SkyUK sometimes.”

When coverage resumed, viewers saw Scotland’s Brandon McMullen dismissed for a bizarre misjudgement.

After a missed stumping, he failed to get his foot back in the crease – enabling the wicketkeeper to run him out.

The T20 World Cup, being held in the USA and West Indies, has had a remarkable start.

And that’s largely down to the joint hosts.

The US toppled cricket giants Pakistan in a super over.

The strong favourites looked set to nick a close win with one ball left of the regulation 20 over-a-side contest.

But Nitish Kumar walloped it for four – meaning a tie as both sides made 159-7.

Pakistan then fell apart in the super over decider, with Mohammad Amir bowling three wides.

The US made 18-1 before Pakistan fell six short of victory.
