When did commentary make its debut in cricket?The first cricket game to be covered on radio between two teams from New South Wales was a charity game in Australia in 1922. Len Watt was the man behind the mike. Regular commentary started during the 1924-25 Ashes series, where a summary of the day’s play would be given at regular intervals on a Sydney radio station. The first ball-by-ball commentary started in England by F H Gillingham, who covered a county game. Since 1930, cricket commentary on radio became commonplace and almost every Test match, including a host of state games in England and Australia began to be covered.
