    Gilly has a great sense of humour. I'd love to hear him on the mic full-time. I was a huge fan of Healy when he was playing... but his commentary is just awful.

    "Australia to score 1,467 and Brett Lee to take one million wickets."

    Bit of an exaggeration, I know... but the point still stands.

    You would imagine 9 will have to get rid of someone otherwise they will be having 4 men commentating.

    I would've thought Warnie would have got a gig by now especially with the work he did during his suspension.

    Maybe one or more of Bill, Greigy and Chappel are on their last legs in the box? Need to groom for the future I guess.

    If I remember correctly Warnie was all signed up by channel 9 in anticipation of when he eventually retired then one of his indiscretions annoyed them (might've been the repeated cheating in England in 2005) so they tore the contract up.

    Hopefully its all 3. Well, Bill can be entertaining so maybe just Healy and Greig.

    Out of the three, it will be Healy. Lawry, Chappell, Greig and Benaud are contracted until their deaths, or when the universe implodes killing us all.

    I love the fact that people speak of the commentary team like they are a cricket team - it doesn't matter if there are two keepers in the box (my summer would be incomplete without a chance to swear at Healy from the comfort of my own couch).

    That was back in about 2005. When he retired, he was offered a commentary job with Nine, but knocked it back.

    Anyway, as the above article alludes to, I understand that Gilly won't be a ball-by-ball commentator with Nine as such. But I guess more of a comments man who perhaps talks with Nicholas during breaks and leading up to play (more of an on-camera role than in the commentary booth). He won't, as I understand it, be full-time (ie. at every match) either.

    Agree with pretty much everyone in the thread - Gilchrist's always struck me as someone who'd make an excellent commentator. Hopefully he replaces Healy, whether or not space could be made for 2 wicketkeepers.

    at McNamara BTW.

    God, the world's cushiest job or what? Come in pre-game, at lunch and maybe tea, with a bit of stumps work as well, and have 50 cans in between. He'll be 19 stone by the end of next season!!
    I wonder if he might do the cricket show instead of O'Doodle?

    Cushy for sure. Only better job is weatherman on the 6pm news.

    Yeah I think, when available, the Cricket Show would be a good fit. As I say, his will be more of an on-camera role. He may, who knows, eventually take over the hosting role from Mark Nicholas - which, going by some of the scathing comments, would be cause for celebration on this Forum.
