    Shastri Vs Hussain, Shastri has lost it

    Always thought he was the best of Indian commentators, still think he is, but the guy just completely came off like an A grade moron.

    Hussain is tops, love his commentary, top bloke

    Shastri and his ilk are the broadcasting equivelant of a one-eyed, biased troll. If I was an executive at ESPNStar I'd be ****ing embarassed at paying these guys money to spout their crap. It would be cheaper to hire someone from a YouTube comments section.

    tbh, that describes most commentators. It's why it's noteworthy when there's a bloke who isn't a YT troll + mic.

    Yeah but that was just embarassing.

    I'll also throw in that I'd love to give Harsha Bogle's face a good slap. There's something about that man that bugs the bejesus out of me.

    Gavaskar is much worse tbh. Sometimes the stuff he says sound very much like Youtube comments section. I think a lot of trolls there get their lessons from him.

    Yeah people like Gavaskar and Shastri are quality trolls who have narrow minded views on just about everything, but as T_C said its pretty much the same with commentators all around, the worse thing about Gavaskar and Shastri though is that they sound like BCCI salesmen at all times.

    lol @ Shastri..........hahahaha.......what a loser man........



    That jealousy bit was SSSOOOO hilarious.........it cracked me up.......
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Well I just saw the star cricket clip and him and Gavaskar tried to put all the blame on Bell today and that really annoyed me. I didn't expect any better from Gavaskar but I was surprised by him because I always thought of him and Shastri as 'better' Indian commentators. I having second thoughts about both of them now.

    The funny thing is I am liking Ganguly as a commentator these days even though I never liked him as a player.

    Its not even a comparison as commentators,Shastri does not even come close to Nasser Hussain.

    Additionally, Nasser and co (at Sky) are way better than StarSport.
    StarSport has some rubbish/Biased commentators i.e Gavaskar,Shastri where as SkySports commentator team is full of legends.
    Bumble,Atherton,Hussain are just too good, listening to them is worth it.
