Re: Willis Trophy Game 2 Northants away

The commentary is 3 balls behind the video for those trying to get their heads around it.

I wonder if the techies at Northants are rushing around trying to sort this or whether they''ve just gone 'it'll be OK'

Somerset would be working hard to get this right and may even take the commentary off until they did but that commitment to the watching listening public isn't always apparent elsewhere - especially in the case of Championship cricket.

Hopefully that attitude will disappear as the clubs have to go to streaming and realise how big the audience is.

Good start for Brandon Glover the 'Dutch' Saffer on debut. Normal start from the Somerset batting front end.

There is a twitter stink wafting up from Worcestershire who seem to have restricted their streaming to 'members only' via their website I am assuming. Other supporters NOT impressed it seems and it may change for the second tranche of games.

Something positive happening because of the pandemic
