    That's not a surprise though. It seems a lot of commentators certainly don't keep up with cricket news as you'd hope they would and seem to simply not have basic knowledge that just about anyone on CW would have.

    I always give Taylor some slack as he was the best on-field captain I have seen. At least some of that insight has to come through into his commentary, right?

    I add my vote to those that want Greig and Lawry gone. I think Lawry is a shattered man since Warne retired - just not the same.

    Don't mind Taylor. He's no Atherton or Nasser, but he's decent enough. Would probably be better with a different commentary team around him.

    Also reckon he suffers from having a bad voice.

    Commentators in other countries always seem to have their finger on the pulse, our guys have no idea whats happening outside of our summer, been going on for years and years this garbage.

    Gotta say, Ian Chappell is the man for me, great commentator. The rest are hopeless. Love Nasser and Athers too on Sky.

    Taylor's the one who sounds like he's talking whilst stuffing his face with pies, isn't he?

    Ian Chappell is ****ing hopeless. He's my least favourite out of the lot. Such a negative ****.

    Outside of Healy and Chappell there's nothing wrong with the channel 9 commentary.

    Not the case at all tbh. I remember when Grant Elliott made his test debut the commentators had no idea who he was.

    That's better than Bill Lawry not knowing who he was in the third game he'd featured in of the summer - all of which Lawry commented in, and two of which he was in the box during Elliott's innings for.

    It is when you compare it to Sky though.

    Absolutely, you gotta compare it to other broadcasters. Sky is fabulous.

    Really?

    All I remember of the commentary that ODI series is Tahny Greeg screaming "HE'S FROM JOBURG! DID YOU KNOW HE'S FROM JOBURG?" and Mark Nicholas creaming his pants over McCullum and Guptill's strokes.

    And Ian Chappell going "Elliot? Why did they pick him?" the day of his 60 odd against Aus

    I skimmed through and was extremely dissapointed to note that no one dislikes Mark Nicholas. Hyperbole trash that doesn't even make sense 90% of the time and keeps crapping on about how you "sense" things. I'd rather listen to Ian Healy and that is saying something.

    I'm with you, Mark Nicholas is the worst commentator, if not person, in the world. Hate the ****.

    Agree with this. His flowery, lengthy, drawn out descriptions make puppies die.
