I Had No Idea That ‘Live Cricket’ On TV Actually Has Quite A Delay/Lag Built-In.

by Anura Guruge


Yes, of course, intrinsically I ‘knew’ that there must be a miniscule transmission/propagation delay & possibly a ‘x-second’ delay for bleeping out faux pas by commentators. But never realized that the delay could be long enough to be EXPLOITED by the ardent betting folks. WOW. What a world we live in.

I only found out about it today when I read that they had caught more people ‘cheating’ in the recent IPL 2021 games. I read on …. & learnt about this. I had to go check. I was amazed. WOW.

Yes, I know there is BIG money involved. But, still amazes I. Amazing. The wonders of this world never cease.

I remember all three, vividly, from the 1960s to the 1980s — living in Britain.

So I thought I will share a YouTube each with YOU in tribute to ALL the good they each did.

They will be missed.

This used to be one of my favorite songs! I think I might still have the LP from 1973. Wow. Lynn — the Aussie.

I remember Clive mainly from him playing for Notts. I used to watch a TON of county cricket live, with Hampshire & Middlesex, in those days. Very nice guy. I liked Clive.

In the late 60s and all of the 1970s she was everywhere — TV and radio. You could not miss her. What a lady.

adelaidepinkIt has, as was alas inevitable, come to pass — Test Cricket crossed with ODI. Yes the players will still wear white (albeit with logos) but the Tests will be day/night affairs, the night portion under lights and a pink ball. The pink ball will be better visible underlights and unlike the white ball will permit players to wear white. That is it. Players wearing white playing under lights — during the night portion of the 5 day Tests. Hence the pink ball.

The first day/night Test will be between Australia and New Zealand, at the Adelaide Oval, starting November 27, 2015.

Saw it for the first time, Thursday night, on “One World Sports“, on “Sling TV” (once “DishWorld“) on my Roku 3, while watching Eng. v. NZ T20.

It was BRILLIANT. So clever. So well done. Just amazing editing. A classic.

Some GREAT memorable still pictures from Ashes from years past. You will remember some. You HAVE to watch it. It is catchy.

You will see Nasser Hussain, David Lloyd, Michael Atherton, David Gower, Michael Holding and others …

You will thank me. You will see.
