Closest comparsion for Bumble is Bill Lawry.
Bumble doesn't help himself by coming across like an absolute spacker, in all honesty.
While he clearly knows his stuff, he just irritates me too much for me to pay much attention to most things he says.
Hoping Tony Greig won't be near the commentary box this summer, the man is the dictionary definition of a half wit.
