Bbc Cricket Live
If you can’t get to the big match, then live cricket commentary is the next best option for cricket fanatics. TV coverage may be high quality, but is many times fixed to subscription channels. If you merely have to recognise the latest cricket score and don’t have access to satellite TV, then audio or text services on radio or internet are the best source.
Live radio commentary on internationals is many times provided by the national network of the host country, for example ABC Local Radio (Australia) and SABC Sport (South Africa).
However, in my sentiment BBC cricket commentary is second to none. In addition to all England’s home matches and major domestic cup matches, the BBC also provides world wide commentary on other key international series.
The BBC coverage is provided by the Test Match Special (TMS) team. TMS has become a national and global institution, and even provoked a ardent debate in Parliament on proposed changes to the service.
TMS has converted millions of listeners to cricket, including numerous who knew not one thing when it comes to the game but became enraptured by the splendor of the commentary, the rapport amidst the team, and their liking for cakes! You may now listen their commentary on analogue and digital radio, and the internet. The BBC web web site shows where you may part the TMS experience.
If you want the best of both worlds, try listening to the radio commentary with the TV sound turned down!
Live cricket commentary has also reached the internet, in the forms of audio commentary, text based ball-by-ball coverage, and pay-per-view cricket streaming. Many web websites promise live cricket commentary, but genuinely provide a text based ball-by-ball service rather of audio commentary.
Cricket streaming is in it is infancy; it is pay-per-view and subject to numerous software compatibility problems, and the picture quality isn’t great. But, watch this space, because in 10 years it will be much more accessible.
Cricket highlights are available on terrestrial and satellite TV, and likewise online for chosen high profile matches. While not live cricket, the highlights give all cricket fans a quick half hour fix of the best parts of the best games.
Live audio commentary is a outstanding substitute if you can’t get to the huge match, but be prepared – it may be very addictive to junior and senior fans alike!
