Radio Commentary – India tours West Indies in the past

The very news of India tours West Indies fell like music to many old time crickets fans across India. When no TV was available, fans like the author depended on radio commentary only. West Indies radio would broadcast the commentary from 8 p.m. on wards (IST). Tony Cozier was very familiar with people like me because of the timber of his voice.

Great players who demonstrated their prowess when India tours West Indies

In 1960s three W’s were house hold name in India not only because of their cricketting style, but also because of their sportsmanship. Weeks would never appeal if he feels the batsman is not out. Players of the modern era retained sportsmanship like him, there would not have been any need for third umpire. In the past bowlers believed in not pressurizing the umpires with excessive appeals. Most of the batsmen (except Aussies) will walk, instead of declared out by the umpire. Sobers, Kanhai, and Gibbs brought glory to West Indian Cricket.

No dull moments when India tours West Indies

West Indies batsmen played with a philosophy of “hit out or get out.” This philosophy of West Indies ensured listeners to commentary like the author, to have no dull moments. Any dull moment for some period of time will kindle sleep when the commentary is listened at midnight. May be keeping Indian fans’ interest the West Indian players might have adopted that attitude. Famous 403 for 4 victory at Port Spain at around 0300 a.m. brought great pleasure to listeners like me. Most of my friends listened radio during the match and we still whenever meet talk nostalgically about it.

India tours West Indies should enthuse fans across India as in the past.
