    Yeah Key is class.

    Like Mark Butcher as well but never seems to get a proper go with Sky.

    RE: the "we" stuff, it depends.

    The Ian Healy style "We really need a wicket here" shouldn't be on.

    But, like before when they were asking Struass about Broad and Swann with the DRS, saying that "we had a rule" is perfectly OK.

    The England cheerleading is a bit much at times but really this commentary team is so much better than what we get on Channel 9 during the home summer that I'm hard pressed to complain. They are mostly perfectly okay to listen to, varying to mildly annoying at worst. And, amazingly, they actually have stuff to say about the game sometimes that is worth vocalising.

    The best thing about the Sky team is that the understand that not every single ball has to be a massive event.

    Don't know what it sounds like watching in a pub without sound, but why do Sky seem to obsess with thinking the audience wants to watch analysts standing in front of TV screens, rather than just talking over the pictures? Having analysts in front of screens halves the size of the screen, that's not mentioning when the analysts are actually blocking the view!

    Strauss says some good stuff but his tone of voice needs working on, a bit like Boring Bob. Early days though and may well improve in time.

    At least Strauss doesn't sound like he's going to slink off to a dark, lonely corner to kill himself.

    Was Bumble always this funny? He's really grown into the clown role over the years..does it superbly too, I might add. Was going on yesterday about how he ran down the pitch to whack a dead ball to the fence in his playing days.

    I'm quite liking Strauss. The polar opposite to Botham in that he's intelligent and nice.

    Bumble gets on my nerves more and more every year. He just chats rubbish, he's like the old relative no one listens to anymore.

    Agreed on both counts, definitely prefer Strauss to Botham. Bumble was funny in 2007, but his schtick is getting old. He's irritating as hell on Twitter, and just seems to talk constant crap on commentary.

    Listening to the English commies on the radio one could think the Ashes started in 2005 then played again in 2009 and 2010/11.
