    here is a very late recap that i meant to post last night

    -i talked about sulieman benn early, stopped in the middle and then reverted to benn-bashing accidentally during the jorderson slog when observing they would like to have a strike spinner
    -it was me starting a lot of the general discussion as by the latter half of the first session my legitimate television coverage was behind dan's actual television coverage
    -the clicks of the keyboard were dan i think because i heard them too and i did very little typing, all that i did was two skype messages to dan
    -desk clacks i did not observe though couldn't have been me as i was on a couch
    -the fan and background noises were probably me because my laptop does that

    Yeah; I started posting a few in the match thread but it felt weird randomly bringing up Vernon Philander for example. Quite a few of my comments were essentially direct replies to the commentary rather than general thoughts about the game, and it'd get seriously annoying for people in the match thread who weren't listening to the commentary to read all my out of context posts.

    Not sure whether it was cab or mariner, but one of your mics/voice was a bit soft.

    First time listening live, really enjoyed it.

    Yep, but whenever I go to post a comment it asks me to log in, even though I already am. It's weird.

    How very strange. Shouting at your computer several times could help?

    Listened to the first 3 hours of day 5 yesterday and it was really professional. I felt the lead guys (spark the first 2 hours and Howe the third hour) described the proceedings superbly. Sparks got a great understanding of the art of bowling so I enjoyed listening to that a lot.

    Howe sounds so similar to a famous commentator who I can't think of his name, any idea who I mean? I really like how he included the other guys in the discussions and overall I just find him entertaining to listen to as he strikes the right balance between being professional and witty.

    Yeah I literally only managed to catch 5 mins here and there but what I did hear was superb...........massive kudos to the commentators and those involved in setting this up

    I really think there is some mileage in this so I hope that those that have put in the effort to get this up and running aren't too disappointed by the relatively low participation so far. As we all know the time zone for the West Indies is a killer for us here in Oz and NZ but with some big series coming up in more sociable time zones I can see this becoming really popular.

    To listen to guy's calling the cricket that actually know what the **** they are talking about is the stuff of dreams..........can't see me ever listening to Ch9 or the Sky boy's again with this available.
