Four-ball overs

It's finally been decided. Prasar Bharati, or Doordarshan, will telecast the upcoming cricket series between India and Pakistan. Zee and ESPN will have to wait their day. It is good news that the series is being telecast at all, but watching Tests on DD is an ordeal because of their poor production values and bad commentators. The part I hate most is how they often go into a commercial break with one ball left in the over, and return one ball late in the next over. That's like cutting off one-third of the game. Brutal.
