    Went for Bumble. Enjoy most of the English guys. Actually love Boycott. Can remember a couple of times during the 2005 Ashes when Australia dropped catches in the cordon and Boycs was laughing so hard, cracked me up. Slater was with him saying "settle down Boycs". Was very funny.

    Ian Chappell- listening to him always so interesting. He is strongly opinionated and adds excellent depth to the broadcast when he starts talking about his personal experiences.

    Nasser Hussain- in his early days came across as a biased and opinionated commentator- but in the last 3 years has been awesome. Very fair and impartial- also has good knowledge about players from other countries.

    Allan Border- so impartial and professional it is untrue- can't believe he used to be called "captain grumpy" since these days he comes across so cool, calm and collected.

    Yes like Holding's voice and though he's a regular here now don't mind Mark Nicholas.

    I'd twist the motive behind this thread and go with the Zimbo Pommy Mbangwa. Severely underrated commentator.

    The best commentators to have ever called the game were Allan McGilvray, John Arlott, Christopher Martin Jenkins,Keith Miller and Bob Simpson

    Methinks this forum is over critical of commentators.

    Jeremy Coney is by far the best at the moment and is sadly lacking in this poll.

    He was the first one I thought of, but unfortunately he only does studio punditry over here.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Has to be Richie on the tellybox, but generally with Howe and HDS - Coney is hugely entertaining

    I think he was during the recent series.

    Not voting on the poll because the standard of commentary outwith the Sky team is utterly terrible. Benaud and Warne the only 2 on the list that are passable and Warne's terrible when he's in the box for Channel 9 or ESPNStar.
