    THERE....IS....NO....WAY...FOR PICKING WHICH SIDE OF A COIN TO PICK THAT "MAKES SENSE"

    YOU PICK A SIDE - HALF THE TIME YOU WIN, HALF THE TIME YOU LOSE!

    NONE OF THE "HEADS AT HOME, TAILS ON TOUR" - IT DOESN'T MATTER!

    i see your simon doull and raise you anil 'the robot' kumble.
    Awful sounding commentator.
    Hell is:
    listening to kumble commentary,raikkonen interviews and misbah interviews.
    Give me David Bumble 'we bloody murdered em' Lloyd anyday .

    For such a big tournament there are too many newbie commentators such as anil kumble, Wasim akram, these guys need training they get thrown in into the deep end to quickily.
    Wasim always enjoys commentating on the womans matches for some reason.

    Kumble has played T20s and Kumble has played recent intl cricket with and against many players that played in this tournament.

    That makes him a valuable member of the commentary box. So what if he doesn't jizz his pants every time something happens. That's the role of other commentators.

    I think Kumble has given a new spin to the commentary box
    "I am very happy and it will allow me to have lot more rice."

    Agree with much of what has been said already. Heard Saurav for the first time yesterday in the SL v WI semi-final. Found him quite good, to be honest. Commentary could certainly have been of a higher standard had guys like Rameez and Jackman been commentating as well. I think that Bish has pretty much been a notch above the rest - very easy on the ears, insightful and exciting enough. In contrast, Wasim has been quite dreadful, pointing out the bleeding obvious and very biased.

    Ranil Abenayake has been pretty under the radar, how d'ya guys find his commentary? As for the studio presentation from Sky, I think it has been reasonably good. I agree with those that said Nick Knight is a good - I definitely enjoy listening to him and he seems to know what he is talking about. Quite like Ian Ward too although quite a few people seem critical of him. What you guys think of Athers?

    I personally found Kumble and Wasim dreadful..

    would love to see waqar and ravi in place of them..

    also guys like toni graig and Robin Jackman are awsome tooo..Specially Tony and his style of commentating suits this format of the game...

    If Sanjay Manjrekar and Ranjit Fernando ever commentate together, please put me on suicide watch. Diabolical. How dumb does Manjrekar think everyone watching is? Goose.

    Kumble, well, I've slept a lot sounder since he joined the commentary team...

    Kumble is pretty good for a newbie, Wasim has always been dreadful Waqar would have added more value then him and I am really pleased I don't have to listen to Rameez, Ravi or Sunny.
