Test Match Special


Test Match Special
a BBC radio programme, also available on the BBC website, which provides complete commentary on every cricket test match (= international match) played in England and some test matches involving the England team in other countries. It began in 1957 and has become almost a national institution. It is known for the humorous style of the commentators when describing each game. Listeners regularly send them cakes and other food, which they also describe. The two most famous commentators have been John Arlott and Brian Johnston.
