A fine cover drive that deserved to be four. Unfortunately a beer glass thrown onto the outfield by a drunken spectator has stopped the ball. Shame.
That is ridiculous.
...he really should have picked that up.

Personally I don't think there's anything wrong with the commentary per se, it's more to do with the frequency at which fairly unlikely events occur. For example, even playing in a blind cricket league, in RL I never see players being hit by the ball on such a regular basis - Okay, short leg and the WK might cop a few, but maybe that'll happen twice or three times a match, not two or three times an over! Similarly, despite being the most technically correct (boring) batsman on my team, in nineteen years of playing, I've hit the non-striker's stumps with a straight drive precisely once! I remember because sadly the bowler got a hand to it, and ran out my partner - I wasn't the most popular boy in the pub that night!
And in those nineteen years, I've never seen anyone get bowled, only for the bails not to fall. Mind you, that's probably because, in my league, we play with fixed stumps, so if the ball hits the wicket you're out regardless! - Though that causes a whole other series of arguments over whether the ball hit the face of the stumps, (which is clearly out), or the side or base, which is not out, as they wouldn't be there on an ordinary set of stumps. This is a particular bone of contention for me, being a left-arm chinaman bowler, turning it into the stumps. Though I bowl people so rarely that personally I reckon they should be given out if I beat the bat, let alone hit any part of the stumps.
The only similar event I can recall in test cricket was when Dominic Corke, against The West Indies in 1995, knocked his bails off while playing a cut to Ambrose. Nobody, including Corke, realised, and they ran two. When Corke got back to the striker's end, he simply replaced the bails and went on to get a fifty! Only TV replays showed what had happened, and Corke maintains to this day that he was as clueless as everyone else.
But my point being that, in about twenty-five years of watching test cricket, I can only recall one, slightly similar, event, so it shouldn't happen in BT every other over!

I've seen people being bowled without the bails falling of numerous occasions in my career...
I've seen a lot of people leave the field injured because they got hit...(i've hit someone to the hospital once..he dropped the catch I gave him )
I've hit the stumps of the non strikers end quite a lot...but indeed not 3 times an over!(same with people being hit and the bails not falling off)
P.S. We beat England at Lord's
