    Brian Johnston and Christopher Martin Jenkins at the mike during the Test matches played in England and such a pleasure to hear them during the evenings here in India.The radio commentary had its own charm and the listener was kept in rapt attention by these gentlemen in the commentary box.I remember carrying the radio in the village for the evening stroll during the England West Indies Test match series played in 1984-85, nothing sounded so pleasant...!!Yes TV beams in live pictures but listening to commentary had its own different charm altogether....
