During the first 3 overs of the Kings vs Royals IPL match, the feed that I was getting did not have the main commentary( Not the first time, CBN’s feed always is like this, but most of it is pre-match. This is the first time it continued even after the main commentary team took over ). Instead it had the producer’s instructions. I have listed the camera numbers on the stadium. which he keeps talking about, continuously giving instructions to the cameramen, as to whose camera is on air, whose camera will be next on air after x seconds and all that. So much work behind the camera that we never get to know of.
1/3 – main camera
6 / 7 – striker / non striker
pink roll – stump cam
yellow roll – main camera close to the pitch
green roll – reverse angle close to pitch
blue – square angle
4 – fans
the producers gives his take on boundary decisions and his feelings about the match :)) his commentary is much better than the team
5 – square
dugout / hawkeye – self explanatory
one shouldn’t assume the time when one cant assume the time especially when one cant get onto the internet to check the world time.
