    Felt a bit sorry for Maxwell today. It’s a TMS tradition that the visiting commentator comes on to describe a win. He came on at 9 down. He wasn’t on at the end but described a lot of Stokes 6’s.

    Ponting's commentary has been a breath of fresh air when several of the Sky team seem to be on autopilot.

    If Benaud was the Bradman of the commentary box, Ponting is the Ponting of the commentary box. He might even be the Smith of the commentary box he's that good.

    Maxwell's an alcoholic right?

    He came on at Edgbaston in 2005 as well, to celebrate the supposed CrimWin. Hence "England win - by two runs!!"

    Test Match Special is getting seriously dud. The Root dismissal "He's fallen over and the finger goes up". Lyons bowling to Burns "A terrible ball that almost got a wicket". One delivery "That's gone straight through." Turned out to be an edge that went between the keeper and the slips. The skill of the commentator used to be to describe the play as it happens and then discuss it. This bunch just bluster and describe it after. Never thought I'd miss Henry Blofeld.

    Blofeld was great. David Lloyd on the otherhand is a try-hard.

    Edit: Stokes just got out with me sitting in front of the laptop serving as a radio. I didn't notice he'd got out due to their excessively understated commentary.

    The only positive thing I can say about Botham's commentary is that he doesn't bring up his own career hardly at all (something Damien Fleming is shameless at).

    Otherwise his commentary is dreadful. Provides no insight, has no obvious commentary stylistic skills and most of the time seems to be wishing he were somewhere else.

    Maxwell trying to Gambhir by saying Aus could be dismissed for 120 and England can win. I can't blame him and yet I do.

    Botham “I’m surprised Stokes walked.”

    Well okay, a few people were.

    “I’m not sure Tim Paine would have reviewed it.”
