    Disagree, tbh.

    His point about the slog being the best shot to Dimi was spot on. Wouldn't have known that if he hadn't followed the domestic game.

    But he then went on and on about how Mascarenhas gets away with it in county cricket but wouldn't at higher level, ignoring the fact he opens the bowling in the IPL as well.

    Ronni Irani and Darren Gough aka Dumb & Dumber are the commentary team on Talk****e.

    Feel for their 'colleagues', Neil Manthorp and Graeme Thorpe.

    True, but IPL still domestic, technically.

    Who's Alan Wilkins, btw? The old Glamorgan trundler of the same name? Been in SA too long if so.

    Yeah. But he left before Mandela was released.

    Irani was the reason I stopped watching the IPL. I couldn't stand his voice, his opinions and the fact he was ridiculously critical of anything that went slightly wrong. Such an annoying man.

    He (Wilkins) is a decent listen. He covers a lot of U19 cricket, always does their WC and is good value.

    Yeah, seems decent enough. Just never really heard him before. Accent either suggested a Saffie who's been in Blighty for a while or vice versa. Turns out it's a bit of both, it seems.

    England match not on Radio 4 LW or Five Live Sports Extra now. Really poor for a must-win game.

    That's good, but don't they share coverage with about four other sports?


    There must be some football news coming on soon.

    On the original theme of Associate-related ignorance, cricinfo reckon Ireland are going to leave out Niall O'Brien for tomorrow's game against Bangladesh. I seriously hope that's just a boob.

    Another rant on the commentary on Associate nations- it was repeated ad finitum yesterday, when Ireland were set 138 to win against Bangladesh, that they'd never scored more than 118 in a T20 international. Figures mean nothing without context, so have a look at the qualifiers for yourself, where Ireland won every single game they played and conditions were so bowler-friendly that only in one match did any side manage to make more than a run a ball.

    It would be just as misleading for me to have pointed out that Ireland have never lost a T20 international.
