I assume Sky will have

hopefully not Willis.
Not much to choose between the two, don't like Botham, or Gower particularly, but i think Hussain and Atherton are improving and i like Bumble for his irreverant banter. Don't particularly like the Nine line up apart from Slater who was pretty good when he did Channel 4 in the past, Hate Nicholas and i think Benaud's on the decline.
I like Atherton and Hussain a fair bit. I think more often than not they make very interesting points and you can clearly see why they were both England captains for quite a while(Hussain more so than Atherton). While Lloyd isnt particularly brilliant when it comes to his knowledge of the game, at least he provides some comic relief as opposed to the likes of Botham and WIllis who spend most of their time complaining about some ridiculous non-issue which they usually end up being wrong about anyways. Gower and Nicholas are decent as well IMO without being spectacular. At least Nicholas can get do the melodrama quite well.
From the Australian side, even though i know it wont happen(it'll probably end up being Lehmann or someone else), id like to see Ian Chappell. I think he knows a lot more about the game than almost everyone else in the box. Probably alongside Geoffrey Boycott when it comes to his opinions about the game.
