    I presumed they'd just redesigned a bit for the new tournament. Anyway, I'll send them something anyway and see if they respond.

    Thought the commentary was decent in the Scotland match, but yeah abit of a shocker re: the dropped catch run out situation.

    Whilst we're complaining... the mascots' uniforms. What is this? A Persil demonstration day? They also look like they're about as thick as Broad's reserves of bottle. The poor bloody kids must be borderline hypothermia cases here.

    It just displayed "Coverage - ESPN Star Sports" at the start of this match.

    Bish & Coney a cut above tho, it must be said. Nice double act. Actually do more than just call the play.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    First game I've watched, and have enjoyed these two so far.

    FFS, the likes of Harsha Bhogle shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the commentary box.

    They're just getting paid to talk whatever they want..LoL

    When Hussain & Lloyd were discussing the role of a leg-spinner in T20 cricket, he was asking dem for a break.

    Sanjay Manjarekar & Alan Wilkins are **** & I did not heard any Aussie commentator, yet.

    Harsha is a good radio commentator but waffles a bit too much for TV imo. Enjoyed Kumble yesterday, sounded so hilariously Anil like. A few stutters but I'm sure he'll iron out the chinks in the armour over time.

    No idea if Gavaskar is commentating on the WC currently, but if he utters the word 'fella' once more, or has us believe that every player from the West indies sports a Jamaican accent, I'm going to hurl the remote at the TV.

    Quite liking Nasser & Chappelli as a combo too. Bit of friendly needle, but both thinking about what's going on.

    Like a PhD level Greig & Lawry, kinda.

    Don't like Nasser at all for twenty20 cricket, he's okay for tests, but spouts a bunch of cliched crap most of the time in twenty20
