Like hearing obscure Wikipedia entries read in between shouts

Somehow, both CATS are sleeping through this session of the ASHES on the radio, as AUSTRALIA chase 311 to defeat ENGLAND.
I guess the felines just don't appreciate CRICKET on the radio.
I have loved it since first experiencing it as a kid on a European vacation.
Cricket's pace (or rather, lack thereof) provides radio commentators an opportunity to discuss everything from history to culture and geography -- somewhat like listening to a continuous baseball rain delay with interesting announcers.
Imagine listening to people with upper-middle class accents reading rather obscure WIKIPEDIA entries with an occasional shout when something happens in the match.
That's cricket on the radio.
