TEST MATCH COMMENTARY COMES BACK WITH A BANG ON AIR
Old transistor sets were out all over the country bringing back the era of Radio back into view. Test Cricket commentary made a remarkable comeback on All India Radio national network as AIR started to broadcast of live running commentary of the current India Sri Lanka cricket series on 26th July 2017, and this time with an additional feature for its listeners to be part of the commentary by sending SMS during the live commentary, the result over a thousand SMS’s on d Day! Only from all the corners of the country, be it Kashmir or Hyderabad, Guwahati or Bhuj, all congratulating AIR for bringing the old romance of AIR Cricket commentary back into their life. Some messages were real expert comments on the game suggesting how deep rooted is the knowledge of the game in every individual fan of cricket. Comment that the cricket commentary sounds much better on Radio then on T.V is such a delight for all the presenters and the entire team. Another misconception that Test matches are not followed that well is also busted by the innumerable listeners of All India Radio spread all across the country. Just a few of the messages are reproduced here.
