    Nicholas is excellent at the on-camera stuff, but keep him out of the box please. How about a bit of the old Mike Walker?

    Yes but I don't want to listen to a man speak articulately with all style and no substance. I don't care about his vocabulary, I care about what he has to say regarding the game, and really the only thing he's capable of doing is hyping up whatever is going on making it seem like its the most incredible thing he's ever seen in cricket.

    But he does bring in a bit of excitement to the game.
    I don't think Atherton is particularly biased.

    An interesting thing I heard a few months ago was Richie Benaud commentating just after his retirement and I have to say he had a weird resemblence to Mark Nicholas.

    Benaud was condemning John Snow and he was all like,"Snow is acting like a primmadonna of a South American football side, not a cricketer." In short, he was trying to sound articulent and elegant. It didn't work.

    Now he's the most famous and respected cricket commentater ever. He's crickets John Madden.
