    I'd rather have 3 Richies wax lyrical in the comms than 3 Healys.

    I get the feeling that Ponting will join this channel 9's commentary crew next year (even if only for 1 test). Would love to listen to him speak at the rate of light years

    If there is anyone who tries too hard I reckon its Mark Nicholas.
    I'm sorry, but how can anyone like Tony Greig as a commentator? The guy is the biggest douche ever to commentate a game of cricket.

    That would be Greg Ritchie. Those mid 90's were awful.

    No, You ask most Australian cricket fans/followers who they hate most as a commentator and they will say Tony Grieg, with Healy 2nd place.

    Really? I agree with Healy, but not Greig. Where's your evidence for that?

    Not really, Healy's the worst of them all though.

    All my mates, family and people I know who follow cricket absolutely hate Greig as a commentator. Secondly, he was voted the Australian public's least favourite commentator in an Australian cricket survey about 6 months ago that came out in every newspaper and also online, a lot of people took part in that. I also see many people complaining about him on various cricket forums I have been on.

    I know its not channel nine, but a truly unbearable commentator is one of the NZ guys who commentated on the last IPL. Can't recall his name though...

    Quite like the NZ guys, Doull, Smith, maybe Danny Morrisson is a bit of a douche.

    If it's a NZer in the IPL it's Danny Morrison he's referring to
