Cricket Commentator

I’ve been invited to the panel of commentators at Sify.com to cover the ongoing India v/s Pakistan cricket series. Sify.com offers live audio commentary from its digital studio.

I will doing only an hour of commenting. I haven’t started yet. I’m in the ‘soaking-in-the-atmosphere’ stage. I might begin from the second test onwards.

This isn’t part of my work and I’m doing this more out of interest. So I want to make sure that this doesn’t clash with my regular work schedule. This is something I like about my company. Employees are encouraged to try out their talents and given ample opportunities. For example, the girl who modelled for Sify’s Way2Talk telephony service is from our e-learning division. The smart guy on our company website is from the Enterprise Solutions division.

Frankly, this is my first try at commenting at such a level. Heck, this is my first try at ANY level!! Am I awed? You bet! I’m looking forward to the challenge.

This live audio commentary service should be a boon for folks outside India who don’t get TV coverage. The audio commentary should really complement Cricinfo’s excellent ball by ball text update.

Check it out and let us know your views.
P.S : Bad weather delays start of second day’s play. So, check out when play resumes.
