    I dont care who the commentry team is, becuase theyll be without a hitch better than those biased English commentators.

    Les Murray, Damo Lovelock, Simon Hill, Tony Palumbo, Francis Awaritife.

    I reckon Anton Enus and Leelee Chen could send some comments in as well.

    Or they could sign KOK
    USA Today finds that 3 out of 4 people make 75% of the population.

    I'm wagering that they'll just use the telecast direct from England without changing a thing, commentators and all. Saves expenses that way.

    Most likely. I wouldn't mind them borrowing the ABC radio commentators if possible. They're both government funded organisations after all, and ABC has some pretty good commentators, better than all the channel 9 lot bar Richie. When ABC had the Bangladesh test they used Greg Chappell too, who was dropped from channel 9 a while ago but is a much better commentator than his brother.

    I don't like Greg Chappell's commentary myself. He sounds lifeless and seems to pause too much. However, Ian isn't much better.
    I like the usual Sky team.

    Anyone's a better commentator than Ian Chappel.

    Kudos to SBS. I have Foxtel, but it'll be good that everyone will have access to the Ashes series.

    Bring on Kerry O'Keefe and Thommo. They'd be an interesting commentary duo for sure.

    i know they'll definately be using Gavin Robertson. He's been SBS's cricket expert for about 3 or 4 years now so he'll almost certainly get a run. maybe even be the captain of the commentary team.. i reckon mark waugh might get a go to..

    Will the ABC gang get a gig though?

    They'll have their hands full with their radio coverage, I'd suggest.
