    Hoping Warne remembers who the **** he's commentating for and we get Measured Sky Commentator and Leg Spin Genius Shane Warne instead of Channel 9/ESPNStar Commentator and Aussie Cheerleader ****wit Shane Warne.
    Yeah as Spark said he was awesome. He was excellent as reading the play. There'd be a change in the field or the batman's guard or something and he'd be like, 'oh they just moved X across to Y, I think he'll bowl a wide yorker here' and it would just happen every time.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Yeah, Punter was fantastic. But he enjoyed knowing all the blokes he was commentating with, be interesting to see how he is as more of a fish out of water.

    Not officially. But Google is your friend. I'm watching Sky as I type.

    Find myself liking Ravi Shastri on sky's The Verdict show. Can be insightful when not talking about India,

    The majority of commentators actually are insightful in that context tbh. It's when they're given actual cricket to commentate on that things change.
    do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
    who's going to make the violins?
