CricInfo Pandering To Kiwis Too Much

The current Test match between New Zealand and Australia, the 2nd and final of the series, is being covered by CricInfo. They employ a diverse array of commentators including regular Indians and English. I love the commentary. It often smacks of being very British though.

I did notice a slip-up in the textual commentary yesterday which appeared to be making the content more appropriate for New Zealand readers. Everybody knows that they're well known for mixing up their vowel sounds - try this Website for examples of how to speak New Zillund. I love listening to Kiwi commentators say, "Oh, he's hut ut fa sux" meaning "He's hit it for six". Check out the commentary that I spotted.
