    12.4 Clark to Strauss, no run, ooh, close lbw call, but saved by what would be a very, very thin inside edge - a Nicole Ritchie-esque Size O size edge if you like - if it exists, but, ah, it's a touch high, too. That explains things

    Direee.

    How bad were they yesterday?

    Healy describing Symonds' thought processes as he went out was cringeworthy, as was how slow the three commentators were to pick up that it was glove that Gilchrist got on the ball.

    Yeah, they were very bad yesterday.

    Whenever Mark Nicholas comes in to commentate the other two commentators don't need to come into the box for the first three minutes - he just rambles on. Taylor & Slater's banter is getting very tiresome and Ian Chappel wanting Bell to bowl was hilarious.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Haha, I know. Obviously the guy in charge of on-screen statistics just wanted to take the proverbial out of Chapple when, while he was talking about how Collingwood or Bell should bowl, the camera did a close-up on Bell, and showed his career bowling statistics in Tests.

    Still have time for Slater though. Taylor's horrendous, but made to look better by what surrounds him.

    Taylor was made to look like a bit of a fool yesterday, when Panesar was hit for 17 by Symonds in an over and Healy and I think it was Chappel or Nicholas agreed he should be kept on for another over and Taylor scoffed at the suggestion. Panesar then went on to take 2 wickets in his next 2 overs.

    It was either Geoff Lawson or Terry Alderman who said exactly the same thing on the ABC. TBH though i expect nothing else but crap from those two....

    I HATE, HATE, HATE Ian Chappel. Just shut up ok? Stop whinging, stop always being negative, stop hinting that you were this wonderfully daring, attacking captain and say something vaguely interesting for once. Grrrrr. I can't stand him. Channel 9 commentary, geez it's bad. Slater - this man is annoying - everything comes back to him. I cant believe long, long ago he used to be my fav batsman. What was I thinking?

    I love the way Aggers talks to KoK - he seems to have this quite disdain for the man - he alone recognises he simpy isn't very funny. It's great.
    'It is hard to recall a batsman quite so serene, so unrushed, so unflappable.' Chris Ryan on ... look to the left. Ahhhh.

    Oh yes, and how could I forget Simon O'Donnell. He is simly the WORST. How did this man get a job, I fail to find one endearing feature.

    Oh for sure man. I'd rather get bull-whipped 100 times than listen to an O'Donnell commentary stint. Absolutely dire.

    haha i want Bell and Collingwood to have a bowl and get smashed just to shut him up.

    I like Slats's commentary. Hes probably my favourite commentator at the moment.

    Yeah Slats has enthusiasm (as distinct from guys like Greig and Lawry who just go through the motions) passion and freshness.

    Agnew is easily the best of the radio commentators, while Glenn Mitchell is an absolute 'try-hard' who has never managed to even half fill the shoes of the man he replaced - Tim Lane.

    Oh I know - Mitchell gives me the irrits. I miss Tim Lane soo much - he was a class above. I wish the ABC had brought in more BBC special comments men like Victor Marks, instead all we have is Alderman and Lawson.

    Don't ask me why but for some reason I can sometimes quite like Ian Healey. He has all this boyish enthusiasm that in him is quite endearing. And I actually don't mind Mark Taylor either. Even though the voice is awful (the lisp and all) and fails to convey any authority through tone, he actually does tend to say some vaguely interesting things. Like when he was talking about Matthew Hayden's great catch at the Adelaide Oval and explaining why it was great, and where he should be standing at slip I found that quite lucid and intelligible. B/c he was a great capatin if he says something about Pontings tactics I sit up and take notice - as opposed to Chappel.

    Terrible little stint when Gilly and Warne were going nuts just before. Harmison's over wasn't THAT bad, and everyone stuck the boot in. Chapelli having a shot at Pietersen for not catching it, and Healy was in the box at the same time. If it had've been England batting, doing the same thing, all the talk would have been how they were living dangerously and it was a matter of time.
