With Channel Nine not broadcasting the Australian summer of cricket for the first time in 40 years, Fox Cricket and Channel Seven are locked in a battle to win fans' viewership.

And early opinions are well and truly split on day one of Australia's Test series against India, as both networks came in for their share of praise and criticism.

The morning got off to a terrible start for Seven – the free-to-air channel somehow failed to fully capture the all-important coin toss, much to the annoyance of those watching.

The coverage didn't get much better as proceedings progressed, according to some in the Twittersphere.

And so begins another summer of cricket and the nation can indulge in one of our favourite pastimes – bagging Cheteshwar Pujara spares India blushes on day one of first Test against Australia. The winner? Fox , for mine. Seven ’ s coverage is very good. There are a few little things you’d change but

But others commended Seven for its diverse commentary line-up and clean-cut graphics.

Meanwhile, Fox Cricket won compliments on the almost all aspects of its HD coverage with no ad-breaks.

Still, the pay-TV network wasn't exempt from haters, with many social media users believing Fox's all-star call team – headlined by Adam Gilchirst, Shane Warne and Kerry O'Keefee – was too chatty.

Scroll down to see what fans' initial thoughts of the two networks' coverage.

Test of character: Khawaja shows what it means to be a tough cricketer

Test of character: Khawaja shows what it means to be a tough cricketer There has been much navel gazing about what it means to be an Australian Test cricketer. Usman Khawaja is embodying it.

Fox Cricket is an Australian subscription television channel dedicated to screening cricket (both domestic and international) matches and related programming. It is owned by Fox Sports Pty Limited and is available throughout Australia on Foxtel. The channel was launched on 17 September 2018.

Seven and Fox Cricket were always going to be judged harshly as they found their feet and This is Channel 7 launching into cricket . Now just picture what you will. We’ve got Ricky Ponting, Glenn I want you to listen and think of that last song and think about this one because if this doesn’t get you

Watching the first cricket test on channel 7. The graphics are superp - clear, beautifully designed, classic typeface. Well done.
