    1. richie (enough said)
    2. healy (not because he is a good commentator, but because he is so ridiculously biased he's fun to listen to)
    3. dean jones (because at least he's an expert on himself)
    4. tony greig (because i enjoy laughing everytime he says that a ball cut off the wicket when it actually swung)


    but really, all annoy me except for richie. commentators need to start telling us what we can't see for ourselves <----- this excludes most radio commentators, especially the delightful peter roebuck

    - Anyone whose initials are not NSS
    - Anyone who wasnt a swashbuckling opener for India and led them to a drawn series in Pakistan

    Richie Benaud and Boycott are right on top.

    Most Indian commentators are less than ordinary. Arun Lal is an exception.

    I love Richie, and loathe Dean Jones and Jeff Thompson. They're almost bad enough to make me want to go and do something else while they are on.

    Aggers and Richie. If i'm in the right mood then Mark Nicholas is amusing because of his unrelenting enthusiasm. Then again there is Blofeld, the Murray Wlaker of cricket.

    Richie and Kerry for me.

    Most hated commentator: James Brayshaw. Argh, can't stand that bloke. Amusing moment, He was saying Greg Blewett was holding the bat too closed in his hands and wasnt hitting them properly. Next ball Blewy belts one through cover for 4. Soon put an end to his theory. My memory is a bit shocking, but the scene went along those lines. Tony Greig let Brayshaw know about it well and truely
    eep.
