He had further said, “After a long hiatus, cricket commentary on radio has returned to All India Radio for matches held in India. Prasar Bharati is thankful to BCCI for arriving at this multi-year agreement that covers international and domestic cricket in India.” He further informed, “For the first time, we will have commentary of the home matches on Digital Terrestrial Radio (DRM) as well going beyond traditional Medium Wave and FM. The commentary will be live from the grounds rather than off-tube adding to the overall radio listening experience. Prasar Bharati will also be holding a Road show near some of the venues ahead of the matches to create greater awareness about DRM Digital Radio, our NewsonAir App and DD Free Dish DTH as we head into the cricket season at home over the next few months.”
