The Internet, once again, is here to change convention. This time it’s taking cricket commentary, which ‘conventionally’ is considered to be a part of the experience of watching a sport on the field, to the World Wide Web. Ace cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle has been roped in by Ignitee Digital Solutions to give an exclusive and quick three-minute pre analysis before each match. Except, you’ll only be able to view it online.
The audiovisual recording can be seen on social networking sites and others, like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and YouTube. In an attempt to cater to a variety of Internet users, those interested in reading the short concise comments could follow him on Twitter, while others who prefer waiting for the video to buffer on YouTube could do that too. “This platform is definitely going to create enough buzz in social media, which has been picking up extensively among the audiences,” Bhogle feels.
His Facebook page has already pulled in over 4,100 fans in four days and over two lakh views collectively on the video sharing websites. While most Internet junkies may be thrilled with this news, the average Internet speeds may remain a cause of concern, as it did when the IPL was streamed live on YouTube in the past.
