    I do as well. He's far better than Aamir Sohail, Waqar Younis or even Wasim Akram. At least Ramiz is articulate, not too biased and is pretty knowledgeable about the game.

    Loving Jimmy Brawshaw's work - he actually analyses things and is a breath of fresh air.

    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.

    Morrison is like the most hated NZ commentator world wide. Very itstl. Coney is the most popular generally too.

    Smith hates Central Districts batsmen so AWTA.

    Brayshaw is better this year, which is a surprise. He was godawful last year.

    New Zealand: Danny Morrison and Simon Doull (Not a big fan of Ian Smith or Jeremy Coney so I'll go with these two)
    My list from each country

    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.)

    You mean the Rameez Syndrome????

    It is that when you are doing an analysis it is fine but when you turn to ball by ball commentary you are terrible

    I miss Bill. I love his old voice and big nose.

    Ian Healy is the biggest cock. Had a good chuckle when he was going on about how smart he is for that IQ thing and also when he was making excuses for Australia losing on air being totally biased.
