Loving Jimmy Brawshaw's work - he actually analyses things and is a breath of fresh air.
- My much anticipated Australian cricket review is now available in Cricket Chat
- Winner of the 2011 and 2012 Cricket Web NRL and AFL tipping competitions
Here's my list of the top television commentators from each country:
Australia: Ian Chappell
England: Nasser Hussain and Michael Atherton
India: Hasha Bhogle (not much competition there as the rest are poor)
Pakistan: Rameez Raja (again he's the best of a poor bunch)
South Africa: Barry Richards (No other great commentators from South Africa come to mind)
West Indies: Ian Bishop and Michael Holding (I would've said Tony Cozier a generation ago but he seems to be getting worse with age)
Sri Lanka: Russel Arnold (Not a big fan of Ranjit Fernando so I'll give the nod to Russel)
New Zealand: Danny Morrison and Simon Doull (Not a big fan of Ian Smith or Jeremy Coney so I'll go with these two)
Of that mob, I like Athers, Nass and Chappelli.
Harsha is very passionate and knowledgeable but talks too much for TV - he's better suited to radio.
Proudly supporting Central Districts
The Culture of Mediocrity is forever, and is proudly brought to you by New Zealand Cricket in association with Grant Bradburn Sports and the Unholy Alliance
RIP Craig Walsh
Left out Zimbabwe - Pommy Mbangwa, bloody awful though.
Australia: Ian Chappell, Mark Taylor
England: Geoff Boycott (the king of commentators IMO) and David Gower (the Sky team is quite good except for Botham)
Sri Lanka: At this point I can't recall anyone other than Ranjit Fernando and I am not a big fan of his
Pakistan: Ramiz Raja (less crap than the rest)
South Africa: Barry Richards (less crap than the others).
New Zealand: Martin Crowe (whenever he does come into the box)
India: Harsha is good (Sunny and Ravi Shastri seem a little too biased and Ravi seems to suffer from the Mike Haysman kind of syndrome but I will still rate him better than Mike Haysman. Kick out Arun Lal. He is terrible.)
He's old and probably busy ****ing pigeons.
