    I don't mind Colville as a presenter and commentator, it's when he tries to venture assessments of players that he's cringeworthy.

    Sky have got a good commentary team, with the added value of Ian Botham's epic, perfectly timed comments.

    Can someone tell the SBS guys that England have declared.

    I think it was announced over 20 minutes ago that Australia will batting first up, instead they are talking about Johnson and Hauritz bowling today. Check Cricinfo or CW ffs MacGill.

    Warney was a brilliant listen today. i wish he was a permanent addition to the Sky team.

    Yeah, a few of us were saying the same thing in the match thread. Was basically still watching purely for his commentary at one stage just after the fifth wicket fell.

    Reminds me of a skit on the 'That Webb Look' or whatever its called, where they were taking off the BBC news crew for the same thing. They announced that aliens had invaded and were liquidating Earth's population centres and then cut to the guy saying "and if you have a view on these aliens, please let us know via SMS or email". Went on for a bit which I won't try to repeat here, but was the best skit I've seen on that show.

    No way was it the best. That award's been sewn up easily:
