    I actually like Hussain and Bumble, from what little I've heard from that team. Benaud's still quality too.

    Laughed so hard at Waqar's commentary when Danish Kaneria was on a hat-trick vs England.The hat-trick ball came and Geraint Jones was literally plumb lbw but was given not out.

    Waqar's commentery

    "That's, that's hat-trick!!!.I tell you that is hat-trick".

    1. Michael Holding
    2. Richie Benaud
    3. David Lloyd
    4. Dermot Reeve
    5. Geoff Boycott
    6. Mark Nicholas

    1 + 2 because I enjoy their commentary, and think they're both very knowledgeable. 3. Because he's a good laugh. 4 + 5 would have to always be on together - apart from each other they get on my nerves but together they're just sheer comedy value, and Nicholas at 6 because listening to commentary would get boring without one of the commentators being so annoying that you get to shout at the tv and rip it out of them.

    • Benaud
    • Boycott
    • Hussain
    • Nicholas


    Oh YES ...also Ian Chappell
    I like Gower but he seems to act more like an anchor moderating the discussion rather than as an expert himself. He is pretty good if he does.

    True. Some things are better left unsaid in certain situations though. Gracious of Richie to say "he was not surprised" rather than what he would have been thinking which would probably be "cheeky so-and-so"

    TBH I'm surprised he didn't react similarly to his tantrums on the 12th man.
