And yeah, good to see Talksport addressing Diversity head on.
Their football commentary already has live sponsored betting updates during the play. The adverts will simply be inserted into the commentary flow rather than stopping.

Looks like they are simply sharing commentary resources with Sky ..

All male line up "explained"

Mate there’s a women’s World Cup on at the same time which is pretty big ! All the good ones are doing that ��and rightly so.

Instead of - the Lankan cricket authorities have sold exclusive rights to Talkspurt.

Good for them, apart from having the adverts, of course.

It seems to be quite a good commentary team with all, apart from the anchor man, having played the game at the top level (I think).

Yeah, long while back but the Regus thing looms large in my memory of the last time they had any live cricket too. Was probably the SA tour in 2004/5 or some such.

Ex players generally aren't all that great at doing the commentary job on radio i.e. telling you what's going on but more suited to summarising. That line up doesn't look too promising from that point of view.

“The majority of Test Match Special names will be in the UK,” a BBC spokeswoman confirmed. A statement added: “We will be building on our ever-popular online coverage, with the stars of Test Match Special presenting an interactive cricket show. The Cricket Social will broadcast on the BBC Sport website and app… this will complement the regular live text service and allow the audience to get directly involved in the coverage. The day’s action will then be rounded up in our definitive TMS podcast with Jonathan Agnew and Michael Vaughan.”

Can't get talksport 2 on DAB. Will be strange to have only SKY commentary this winter.

If you download the app onto your phone you can get it.

So does this mean you can't listen to it in the car?

It has been a pleasure to listen to Talksport 1 who are trumpeting their cricket coverage at every opportunity. Promoting it in a positive manner as though it matters, IMO a stark contrast to how the BBC treat the game.
