I absolutely despite the ways Indian television producers try to insert more commercial advertisements into their cricket broadcasts. It’s not bad enough that commentators have to rush in a score at the end of an over, lest an advertisement not be shown for the 100 millionth time during a match. And no, it’s not bad enough sightscreens and cricket grounds have sponsors’ logos painted all over them.
No, now they want to put these ridiculous yellow images around the slip cordon as a bowler is running in. Have you noticed this in the India-SA series on Ten Sports Cricket? Absolutely despicable — it’s hugely distracting and I just can’t understand why anyone would think it’s OK to put this huge image floating below Dravid’s feet that suddenly disappears.Surely this is counter-productive?
