    Well the jury's still out on Gilchrist for me. I fear I may find him too earnest and gushing. C 9 needs someone with a dry wit, don't think Gilchrist posesses it.
    'It is hard to recall a batsman quite so serene, so unrushed, so unflappable.' Chris Ryan on ... look to the left. Ahhhh.

    I think he cruelled his chances by repeating 'I don't know who's writing the scripts' a thousand times during his final test last year revealing himself to be too eager to wring the life out of a cliche.

    He was pretty funny in the 20/20.

    i love what symonds said.

    *Oram hits him out of the ground*

    Symonds: ugh i hate cricket.

    And no Bill Lawry and Mark Taylor are good commentators, they wont be kicked out. I dont mind Healy, at least he isnt a SOB like Chappell.

    Lawry is the most exciteable commentator and he is the only one ive heard who is genuinely excited out of every single country's commentary teams.

    You hear him during the T20? He was literally shouting at Hodge to get the ball and stop the boundary. I would imagine he wouldve been out of his seat as he liked to do during one of his appeals when Warnie was bowling.

    Eventually when he leaves, the commentary team will be worse for it.

    Its great to hear this, would be interesting to see whether Gilly is as aggressive in the comm box as he is on the field and yeah please tell me C9 are dumping that idiot Healy, please tell me its happening.

    Yeah, he was awesome during the T20 against New Zealand, especially that thing he said, "after the game we would have to send a little man inside to find that earpiece".

    He certainly did! And the worst part was others started borrowing it. It became the 'we're/you've/I've been on quite a journey' of the cricketing set. I love it when reality TV types say they've 'been on a journey'...as someone wrote in the papers the other day, no you haven't you've been on a reality TV show.

    Obviously Warney's scripts were written during the writer's strike.

    haha Gilly also borrowed Warney's line of:

    "Everyone (past players) said that you'd just know when it's time, and I wasn't sure what they meant, but then..."

    Yeah, absolutely. Should be awesome to hear him next summer.
