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.
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.
