" Be Good and Do Good "
Live telecast on TV was not accessible to commonmen. One or two persons had TV set and they do not allow everyone to watch the live match.
I remember those nights when our team would be play in in Australia and I had to get up around 4 a.m. So I used to sleep with transistor set along with my pillow.
If the commentators were Australians then it would be difficult to understand their relay commentary.
Now, after watching the game on TV, radio commentary won't be interesting to hear. In India, TV is available in every house. It can be watched on our Mobiles. So, we can consider Radio as a dead gadget for cricket.

But as mentioned by the author those following Hindi commentary was a problem. But we were managing somehow and getting the score updated and the position of the wickets. But watching the match on TV is very much better and it is even better than watching in the stadium.
There were some god commentators who se commentary brought the events clear to our imagination like 'Sanjaya' giving live running commentary to Dhritarashtra in Bhagavat Gita (Mahabharatam).
That used to e completed only after reading the sports page in the next days newspaper(generally The Hindu) with its pictures.
