Rich, to his credit, actually got in some half decent quips tonight.
Maybe there's life in the old fossil.

Not a strong start to the season from the commentary team. The same stories, the same pointless discussion (did I seriously listen to two minutes of Mark Taylor discuss his sons HSC exploits?), and the same complete lack of knowledge of the players within the game.
It frustrates me how someone can make a profession as a commentator and appear to have little to no knowledge of some of the players. You could tell this Australian summer is the first time many of the commentators have seen Randiv bowl, and I get the feeling when Tharanga was batting that this was the first time anyone had seen him bat since last time the Sri Lankan's were in Australia. Terrible stuff.

Sorry for not walking? Jesus Christ man."RIP CraigosKnowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put it into a fruit salad
Sign me up for this thread... Single reason I don't even watch games in Australia these days. Highlights make it so much easier on the ears.. AT least u have an idea of what will be shouted out there..
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
