    Subash- Interesting interview- the guys at cricinfo have been the window into the game for folks in the US in late 90’s and most the 2000’s and this sounds like a job any hardcore cricket fan would kill to have. One curious question for these guys…how much do they depend of the cricket audio commentary for information, hope they have other sources of insight into the going on’s of the match other than shastri’s, arun lal’s, siva, jayasuriya’s etc. God bless them if they have to listen to them day in and out!
