Cricket. Radio. Cricket. Radio. Cricket. Radio. It just works. The game may have revolutionised multiple times since the first wafts of Test Match Special drifted over the airwaves, but some things will always stay the same.


The joy of cricket on the radio is something hard to truly express for those who grew up with the game, and it will never be any less marvellous – no matter how short the matches become.

The final is upon us, just one more matches to savour, but it will provide a huge spectacle given the teams involved.

Of course, TMS will be there, like a best friend in the corner, bringing you up to speed with the all the action, all day.

There are 48 matches to be played in total and there's inevitable drama still to come, whether you're in the house, in the car or at the office. You'll never be far from the cricket.
