Rex Alston, the legendary British radio presenter is also one of the all time greatest cricket commentators. He was a popular broadcaster and was loved for his youthful voice. Being a former headmaster, he also had an authoritative tone in his voice which made it all the more better.
Rex Alston used to do commentary for rugby and tennis apart from cricket. But once his popularity caught on and the bigwigs at BBC Radio realized his talent for cricket commentary, he was made to do only that and covered many a historic matches. Some of his comments and descriptions are especially remembered, one of them being the description of the victory celebration of the West Indians after their first win over England, in 1950.
