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

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.
