Digicel and the WICB?s free live commentary of the Digicel Series 2009 – provided by Barbados-based company, Line & Length Inc – has already made an impact to many West Indies supporters across the world.
Across the Caribbean, USA and Africa, Windies fans are listening to Jonathan Agnew, Simon Crosskill, Fazeer Mohammed, Jack Matthew and cricket legends, Sir Garry Sobers, Courtney Walsh, Curtley Ambrose, Colin Croft, Vic Marks and Sir Viv Richards, give ball by ball commentary of the 1St Digicel Test of the Digicel Series 2009 from Kingston, Jamaica.
Emails have been pouring in from across the world:
?I’m sitting here as an expatriate Caribbean cricket lover enjoying your commentary, in cold Toronto. Can’t say enough about your keen cricket sense and wonderful wit – as well as the gripping interest you stir in me to stay with the broadcast via Radio St.Lucia. Thank heavens you are loud and clear and warming up the cold Canadian airwaves with your incisive and exciting commentary.? ? Phil, Toronto.
?Thanks for the cricket broadcast boys! We are listening via NBC Radio in the USA. It is a cold 0 degrees temperature here today in Minnesota. We are all dreaming of a sunny summer day of cricket and a cold beer. Ya’ll are helping us get one day closer to the summer dream.? – M Johnson, Minnesota.
?I am glad that I can listen to cricket commentary from Sabina Park via radio St. Lucia online here in Tunisia/Africa. Having lived in the West Indies for more than 20 years (in Montserrat and Antigua), I turned into a cricket fan, even though I am from Germany where cricket is not very high on the sports agenda. Needless to say, I am backing Windies. Keep on going and thanks again.? ? P. Ippendorf, Tunisia.
?Hey Guys, I am listening on RSL (St. Lucia) or NBC (St. Vincent) and, in both cases, the quality is superb. I am pleasantly surprised at the quality of the broadcast considering the fact that you are using voice over IP. It is my hope that the team lifts its game this season and goes from strength to strength to earn a higher ranking on the world stage, both in Test and ODI Cricket. I look forward to this series with the greatest expectation of a West Indies victory. Keep up the good work.? – Silvanius
