    It's not nearly as frustrating as hearing Tony Greig say "Ohhh what a wonderful shot, right of the meat of the bat"

    Greig is the 2nd worst. Lawry is the worst.

    I'm sick of Lawry's "That's six! Wait a minute, no...tha'ts right down his throught." Or the other way around. Watching the classic one day matches on Foxsports, and he was even doing it in the late 80s.

    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 so true, both are equally dire in any case.

    Ready to cop some abuse, but Lawry is one of my favourites
    You know it makes sense.

    Mine too, despite his bias. Greig as well

    I guess its because I was brought up on them.

    Slats is one of my favourites though. From Sky I love listening to Nasser.

    ABC has the best team around.Just turn the sound down on the TV and the sound up on the radio. The sooner channel 9 get rid of Greig and Taylor the better. When Taylor comes on this summer just wait for him to repeat what the last commentator just said especially if it was Chappell. Taylor likes nothing more than a good repeat. Just listening to him makes me really wonder if he was such a good captain. Maybe it was having the Waugh's Healy Warne around him!

    Yeah, I can't believe people like Lawry, but I live in a glass house myself enjoying Greiggy. And to be fair (it's quite important, after all), it's Greig that makes all the terrible "Oh, he's done that beautifully.... oh, he's out!" calls. Lawry's crimes are of a different variety.

    I remember Kate Fitzpatrick quite well, that was a real fiasco. She spent all her time asking idiotic questions and laughing about the bowlers rubbing the ball on their pants (and the mark it leaves behind) - you know, the stuff somebody who's really bored, or seeing the game for the first time laughs at. I don't know what they were thinking, one of those patronising "what about a women's touch?" things that used to float about back then, because nobody could possibly believe that you could find a woman anywhere in the country (maybe the world) who would actually know something about cricket and be able to talk about it. Fitzpatrick's credentials were only as a second-rate actor.

    Anyhow, hopefully Brantz, the new addition, will be decent. With Lawry, Healy and Tubbs (I will forever call Taylor this after Pedro's post) to compete with, she's got a fair chance of not being the worst on the team.

    Don't worry, he'll probably outlive all of us.

    I just noticed Tuffers on the team - I can see him getting old after a while, but he might be amusing early.

    Why do Channel Nine need nine commentators - plus some token bimbo we've never heard of and won't kmow anything about cricket anyway. As usual the best team would be a combination of the two - say Benaud and Chappell from Nine, Bunble and Beefy from Sky plus Willis - sadly only in the studio - and Boycott - sadly not there at all. We'd need to keep Beefy and Chappell apart but at least us Brits won't have to suffer "tweedle dee and tweddle dum" aka Greig and Lawry. Will Nine EVER sack them?
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...
    Arise Sir Beefy....

    Haha, nice generalisation in assuming she's a "token bimbo". FYI, she's a respected journalist and did studio work during the Football World Cup earlier this year on SBS. Besides, she won't be commentating, she'll be doing hosting stuff and interviews and so on, presumably.

    A female Charles Colville (Sky cricket host) in other words. Sky let Charles commentate on domestic cricket but when the big boys come out to play he's stuck in the studio....

    Was she the one that pissed Warne off by asking him about Simone as he was walking back to the pavillion after getting out a month or so ago?

    Anyways, yeh she's not commentating but doing interviews and other bits and pieces around the place.
