    he has to make up for the fact that everyone looks at him and thinks "shortass"

    besides an inflated ego never harmed most commentators, anyways i've always found him willing to take the mick out of himself.

    Two things worrying in this thread. The love for Boycott, and the continous misspelling of the word 'biased'.

    Holding
    Richie
    Slats
    Gower
    Nasser
    Robin Jackman (Glad some others like him too I became a fan of his after SA's tour of India in 2004/05)
    Ravi Shastri
    Tony Greig

    Hussain is the worst I have heard.

    Martin Crowe is my favourite.

    Robin Jackman is highly underated as a commenator was very good during the under-19 world cup.

    Paul Allot susprising despite the dull tone is actually quite interesting to listen to because he does make some good points, another susprise was Bruce Yardley who was also quite excitable during the under-19 world cup.

    The best commentary teams are often a mix of exciteable, talkitive types (e.g. Lawry, Healy, Botham and Greig) and more knowledgeable types such as (Atherton, Taylor, Donald and Hussain).

    I'm pretty sure people would agree with me.

    1. Richie Benaud - cricketing encylopedia, respects the opposition.
    2. Tony Cozier - warm, laid back, and subtly funny,
    3. Michael Slater - a nod to the modern era. He's the mongrel in the team.
    4. Brian Waddle - absolutely outstanding. His passion for the game is palpable, his voice an institution.
    5. Mark Nicholas - professionalism personified.
    6. Henry Blofeld - all of cricket's eccentricities and upper class sensitivities made flesh.

    The following should be banned forever from any sort of public forum - Greig, Lawry, Healy, Mark Taylor. So biased one wonders what value they provide. Boycott - constructive criticism is one thing, automatic criticism of practically everything, another. The entire NZ Sky commentary team (except Ian Smith) - good guys, but not good enough to be commentating.

    I guess you are talking about Kass Naidoo. She is beautiful, very knowledgeable about cricket and wonderful at the end of game ceremonies. She is however dull as dish water in the booth.

    From my previous posts it is obvious I am a big fan of Boycott. I do understand that people may not like him and this is the exact reason.

    He is certainly not biased but I am sure he can annoy people by criticising virtually everything.

    Personally, I prefer commentators like Bill Lawry, Murray Mexted or the NBA's Bill Walton. I'd rather hear totally random exclamations than ex-players and captains giving blow-by-blow accounts of how they'd do things.
